Left luggage/Cloakroom

Coat hooks are available for visitors to leave their possessions at the front entrance of the Museum. Please note that this is strictly at visitors own risk and the Museum accepts no responsibility for lost or stolen items. The Museum is unable to store personal items in any offices or behind the front desk due to security regulations.



Photography and filming

We allow photography including with flash within the Museum galleries but no filming.

Lost property

The Museum holds lost property in the main Museum office for a period of one month. Items are recorded on the day that they are found. Thereafter items are donated to charity. If you think you have lost something during your visit to the Museum please contact the Museum Administrator as soon as possible.

 

Temporarily closed due to Covid-19
The government recently announced that museums and galleries will be able to re-open from 4 July. Here at the Sedgwick, we are really looking forward to welcoming you back, and are working hard to put in place plans to make sure visitors, staff and volunteers will be safe.  We anticipate that we will reopen later in the summer, and will involve a free, timed, ticketing system. We keep you informed of our plans via our website and social media. 
In the meantime, we are delighted that the Cambridge University Botanic Garden has already reopened

Back at the beginning of lock down the Getty museum challenged us to recreate famous works of art with objects from around the home (#GettyMuseumChallenge). As soon as I heard about it I knew I had to make the Duria Antiquior. Despite it’s size, you might have missed the ‘Duria’, high up on a wall in the Jurassic pond area of the museum.
