Cambridge New Zealand was named after the Duke of Cambridge, Commander in Chief of the British Army in 1864.
Our Cambridge Collection has Royal memorabilia going back to 1837 including a Queen Victoria Coronation Souvenir Pin Cushion. There are medallions and certificates to commemorate visits and weddings; tea towels, teaspoons and soap to celebrate anniversaries; and memories of the Royal Visit in 1954 when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Highness Prince Philip stopped in Cambridge for lunch.
The visitors' book with their signatures is a treasure.
In the Cambridge Museum we have changing exhibitions about Cambridge, while much of our collection is in storage. This is to ensure its preservation for future generations.
