Museums at Night

This year six of the University of Cambridge Museums took part in Museums at Night. I was asked to photograph families and other visitors enjoying a variety of events at 3 separate venues between 5pm and 8pm; The Whipple Museum, where top researchers were on hand to answer all sorts of burning questions about the museum’s intriguing scientific instruments; The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, with demonstrations from three Chilean artists of their contemporary and indigenous artwork and The Fitzwilliam Museum, where everyone enjoyed live music courtesy of a vintage skiffle band.

It’s hard to believe that all this entertainment was on offer for FREE! In addition to providing a chance to see the museums take on a new life after dark, the evening was also a chance to socialise with friends in a unique setting, surrounded by the world class collections of the University of Cambridge Museums.
