The Fitzwilliam Museum at Cambridge University has enjoyed one of its best years to date and has been hailed as one of Cambridge's 'greatest glories'.


Visited by a record breaking 334,000 people last year, the museum also had over 33 million hits on its website over the twelve month period and was hailed by historical critics for its diverse range of exhibitions and displays.



Kate Carreno, Assistant Director of Central Services at the museum, said: “2008/09 was a truly remarkable year at the Fitzwilliam, with two major, internationally acclaimed exhibitions bringing in record numbers of visitors, our first Sculpture Promenade and our most extensive range of public programmes all helping us to reach new audiences.

“This has been made possible by regional, national and international partnerships, sustained support from the University of Cambridge, the Higher Education Funding Council for England and the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council through Renaissance in the Regions, and could not have happened without the creativity and commitment of our staff.”
