The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, England. Vic Stefanu, email@example.com. Cambridge is a university city and the county town of Cambridgeshire, England, on the River Cam about 50 miles (80 km) north of London.

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.

Light is a key element of the new design, as is an emphasis on slowing down visitors and connecting them with beautiful works of art in dynamic new ways. The 204,000-square-foot home of the University’s imposing collection includes an expanded art-study center where visitors can request works for examination by appointment, new University galleries where students and faculty will work with curators on projects, and revamped and expanded galleries where fresh juxtapositions of artworks cr...
