This is a photo of listed building number .
The main entrance to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.
The foundation stone of Cambridge's principle museum was laid on 2 November 1837. The main design, by the architect George Basevi (1794 – 1845), was chosen following an architectural competition. However, Basevi's premature death, falling from the west tower of Ely Cathedral, left much of the costruction to the architect Charles Robert Cockerell (1788 – 1863).
The entrance is a good example of a Neoclassical Corinthian portico. The approach up the oversize staircase, leading into an ornate domed hallway, is similar to the design used in the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
