How to Find us
The museum is very close to the Beehive Centre in Cambridge. From the Beehive Centre, take the 3rd exit off the roundabout and go over the railway bridge. Immediately after the bridge there is a very sharp, double back left hand turn. Take that turn into the commercial estate and follow the road round to your right. Just before the railway crossing, turn into Rene Court on the right and you will see us there.
