Department Collection

The Fitzwilliam Museum is unique in housing a world-class collection of art and treasures fit for a National Library under the same roof. The only parallel in the United Kingdom was the British Museum, before the British Library emerged as a separate institution. The only extant parallel is the Vatican Museum and Library. The Fitzwilliam Museum preserves fine printed books, music, autographs, and one of the most important collections of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts in existence.
