About Our Collections

The profits from every purchase that you make from the Curating Cambridge website are distributed to the University of Cambridge Museums and associated collections (read more about them here). This means that with each item you choose, not only are you selecting a fabulous gift for yourself or your loved ones, you are also supporting these wonderful cultural institutions and the invaluable work that they do.

For our team at Curating Cambridge, product design and selection is perhaps the most enjoyable element of our roles – we really are spoilt for choice with so many intriguing objects to explore. We source products from carefully selected suppliers around the UK who prioritise quality and share our enthusiasm for beautiful design. We are also proud to work with local designers and artists to ensure that the love we have for the collections shines through in our finished products, and to help us create a range of unique gifts for you to discover.

Social responsibility is important to us as a company. You can find more information about our designers and suppliers as you read through our product pages, but please contact us if you would like to know more.

Please sign up for our newsletter and we will send you regular updates and maybe even a few enticing discount offers from time to time. Our blog is another excellent source of information, with stories showcasing product ranges and the inspiration behind them.

This is a question we can't possibly answer – ask any Cambridge resident (and any member of the Curating Cambridge team) and you will receive a different response. There are too many wonderful things to choose from. Whether it is celestial globes, fossilised dinosaur remains, or Renaissance masterpieces, each collection has its own personality and hidden treasures. Our products are designed to help you bring a little reminder of these treasures home.
