On Tuesday 10 June the Fitzwilliam will be hosting an evening panel discussion with five directors from the University of Cambridge Museums.

Together they will they debate how differing notions and meanings of ‘discovery’ have enriched our understanding of the world and inspired the creation of their extraordinary collections.

After the discussion visitors will be invited to see the exhibition after hours until 20.00.
