Plan your visit

Our museum is small and filled with histories about the people and places in the Cambridge district. Your visit could last between fifteen minutes and an hour depending on what triggers your interest.

For family-fun, grab an activity sheet to use as you investigate each corner of the Museum. Our clues change regularly depending on the displays we have, so keep coming back to test your scavenger skills.

Directions – How to get to Cambridge Museum

On foot

You’ll find us on Victoria Street, near the centre of town, just a ten-minute walk from cafes and boutique shops in the town centre. Or it is a four-minute stroll from the Cambridge i-SITE.

By car

Cambridge is on the North Island’s main State Highway 1 between Hamilton and Rotorua/Taupo. Follow signs into the town centre, and you will find the museum on Victoria Street.


There are parking bays in front of the museum and a car park to the rear which can be accessed via Commerce Street and Fort Street.

By bus

National and public buses service Cambridge seven days a week, with frequent services north, east, south and west. Intercity coaches pick up and depart from Victoria Street by the restrooms just across the road from the Cambridge i-SITE.

For bookings and timetables please visit the Cambridge i-SITE on the corner of Queen and Victoria Streets or phone 07 823-3456.



We are unable to provide wheelchair access in to the museum due to the building’s heritage status.  A handrail is provided to assist with the five steps on entry.

Seating is available in the main exhibition space and in our front garden.


Kids and Families

Kids and families are always welcome to the museum. Museum Hunts for pre-school and primary-aged children are available for free all year round, and special activities are often planned during school breaks and summer holidays. Check out  For Families  for more details.



The museum does not provide public toilets.  However, nearby facilities are available in Milicich Place or at the Waipa District Council Service Centre.
