The Fitzwilliam Museum turns 200 this year and we’re releasing a short film to celebrate. Lord Fitzwilliam died on the 4th of February 1816, and founded the Fitzwilliam Museum through the bequest to the University of Cambridge of his splendid collection of art, books and manuscripts, along with £100,000 to build the Museum. This generous gift began the story of one of the finest museums in Britain, which now houses over half a million artworks and antiquities.

Imagine if dozens of history's most influential thinkers and doers could gather in one spot and regale you with stories of their accomplishments. Fifth-graders at Cambridge Heights Elementary School created just that scene last month in a project that brought the biographies of famous figures to life. The event -- called a "living wax museum" -- transformed the Citrus Heights school's multipurpose room into a colorful, lively gallery, where children not only dressed like the people they studied -- everyone from Albert Einstein to Thomas Jefferson to Amelia Earhart -- but delivered succinct and spirited speeches in character.
