School Visits

Schools are welcome to visit. Please call to arrange a time. Because space is limited we can allow a maximum of 20 children in the gallery at one time.


At Home

Looking for ideas or things to do? Our team have devised a variety of activities to help educate and entertain. Inspired by the Cambridge Museum collection, we hope to bring the museum to you! You can follow us on social media or find our growing library below.



Members of the Cambridge Historical Society receive regular newsletters filled with interesting articles on the history of Cambridge, local buildings, businesses and personalities. Here is a selection.


Cambridge Over the Decades

Cambridge Over the Decades will trace the growth of Cambridge throughout the 1900s as recorded in the Cambridge Edition in 1999. We will be adding to these periodically as the site is updated.


Heritage Walks

Heritage Walks around Cambridge are many and varied. Included in our website we have a Business Walk, Churches, Cambridge Domain, Leamington, Waikato River and the Suburbs.


Whānau Challenges

Wherever you are, try some creative challenges with your whaanau and learn about our amazing collections online.
