Training and courses

The Conservation lab runs and hosts training courses for other museums and individuals from the heritage sector. Courses range from how to manage hazards in museum collections or how to monitor and control pests in museums, such as insects and rodents, which can all damage objects.

One of the questions most frequently asked by visitors to the Sedgwick Museum is what exactly are fossils and how do they form? This question also fascinated Agostino Scilla (1629-1700); an artist who lived in the Sicilian town of Messina during the 1600s. Scilla attempted to answer this question in his book La vana speculazione disingannata dal senso (Vain Speculation Undeceived by Sense), published in Naples in 1670.



Visitors can now get up close and personal with one of the Sedgwick Museum’s most spectacular objects, our Tyrannosaurus rex skull cast.
