If you have walked past the Museum recently, you can see through the fences that it is still a building site. However, inside, the end is in sight for our boiler restoration, and on the top part of the site, our new exhibitions building has been finished!

Hi, I am Pei, an MA student from University of Leicester’s School of Museum Studies. It is my pleasure to share my summer placement experience at Cambridge Museum of Technology.
Although it might seem from our social media that all we are doing is crowdfunding to complete the restoration of our historic boiler, there is a lot more happening at the Museum.
Construction is proceeding well as buildings have come down and others are going up. Behind the scenes, we are undertaking detailed research for the new displays and we have just launched an important crowdfunding appeal to complete the restoration of our historic boiler.
After huge amounts of planning and preparation, construction has begun! Old buildings and portacabins are being torn down to make way for our new cafe, shop, and flexible exhibitions and learning space. Work has also started on our heritage boiler so that we can run our steam pumping engines again.
