Dodo bones, snow goggles and the Muggletonian view of the world

The University of Cambridge is not just home to some of the UK's brightest minds, but also to museum collections of world importance. For the first time, all eight of the University of Cambridge museums have come together to create a major new exhibition in London.

Discoveries: Art, Science and Exploration is being held at Two Temple Place - a Victorian mansion built on London's Embankment at the end of the 19th Century by William Waldorf Astor. Take a look around with one of the curators - Dr Lydia Hamlett.
