I don't tend to advertise my university, in a knee-jerk way. I think I tell it as (I think) it is: support the place when it deserves it (like on all the unsung efforts they make on access and outreach) and speak out a bit when it takes some pretty wonderful statues out of the library (still think it;s a crime). So you can believe me when I say that there are some truly amazing things on display for the next few months at Two Temple Place, in an exhibition of highlights -- Discoveries -- from various university museums in Cambridge. It's a brilliant display overall.
It is also a great location, as you can see at the top of this post (and worth going for the setting alone). Originally the home of William Waldorf Astor, and built in the late nineteenth century, it's an amazing Victorian extravaganza (a lavish house-cum-strongbox -- there are walk-in rooms that were actually safes). It now includes temporary exhibition space,
And some of the best university treasures of Cambridge are here.
