What our visitors are saying

I love everything about this House, the owners, the decor, furniture, location. It is so great to know that someone cared enough to donate their whole house to be a museum!

Rarely has a museum given such an insight into a long-gone person’s aesthetic mind. A very carefully collected and curated collection at Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge offers a calming experience

This is one of the best collections (and the best presented) on the planet. We are moved to tears! Thank you

Such a great exhibition, entirely worth the 2hr drive. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, and the staff was superb, educated and helpful. Almost too good for free entry! Added bonus is the beautiful fig tree

It’s my favourite place in the whole world
– Cambridge University Student, 2018

Visited the first week in October during heavy rain, which we soon forgot entirely once through the doors. From two vibrant exhibitions in the main spaces which offered up new perspectives in a fun yet lyrical way, to the utter delight of Jim and Helen Ede’s house which must be one of this country’s greatest gifts to the art world and is experienced in every way as a welcome guest in a home of true lovers of art. An experience to cherish.
