The Sedgwick Museum welcomes visits from groups. All groups must be booked in advance. Please follow the guidelines on the Booking and Planning Your Visit page when planning a group visit.
Due to space considerations, the maximum group size in the Museum at any one time is 35. Larger groups can be accommodated over two or more sessions. Many large groups choose to combine a visit to the Sedgwick Museum with visits to other nearby University Museums, such as the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the Museum of Zoology or the Whipple Museum of the History of Science. Opening hours and group visiting policies vary, so please contact individual museums for specific details http://www.cam.ac.uk/museums-and-collections
Admission to the Museum is free, however a donation of £2 per person is appreciated. There is a donations box adjacent to the Museum shop. If you would like to make a donation in advance online please visit our Support Us page.
