Kettle's Yard contains one of the few art museums in Cambridge, and it has both permanent and temporary exhibitions. The owner, Jim Ede, constructed the original house and gallery out of four derelict Georgian cottages. He presented the house and his art collection to the university in 1966, but still lived here until 1973.

There have been several additions over the years. In 1969-1970 Leslie Martin with David Owers added a large extension. The same firm added further smaller extensions in 1980 and 1984. And in 1994 Bland, Brown and Cole added a further extension at the front, on Castle Street.
