Not sure where to begin your research journey? Our research guides will help you get started.
Our archives contain records – or duplicates – dating from around 1860s to the recent past.
These research guides highlight some of our frequently asked questions. They are organised by topic, and provide details of the archives we have, how to find them, and what information they contain.
It is worth noting that our guides are not comprehensive and can only cover a small proportion of what is available at the Cambridge Museum and online.
