Hot on the heels of Valentine’s Day, discover the naughtier side of the Museum of Classical Archaeology’s collection after hours. Uncover some of the saucy and amorous tales behind the sculptures through tours and a very special hunt — and see the iconic classical statues illuminated as you’ve never seen them before.

Intimate tours
Your chance to hear the stories museum staff don’t tell during daylight hours. In an intimate tour of some of our most celebrated sculptures, find out about the amorous side of classical art — and ask those questions you were always too embarrassed to ask…

Dramatic lighting
For the first time ever, see the Museum’s collection of iconic classical statues dramatically illuminated as you enjoy a drink on us, courtesy of Cambridge Wine Merchants and a cash bar.

A hunt with a difference
Grab your friends and see if you can tackle our scavenger hunt with a difference. (Warning: may contain silliness.)


In order to keep the tours intimate, we ask that you book onto one of three tour start times when you book your ticket: 7.15, 7.50 + 8.30pm.
