Volunteering at the Sedgwick Museum

Volunteers play a crucial role in the work of the museum, assisting with projects, visitor engagement, learning and education.

The museum currently offers volunteer placements by advertising specific roles and occasionally on a case by case basis according to individual enquiries. Opportunities are available in different areas of museum and archives work but due to restrictions on working space the museum only has capacity for a few volunteers at any one time.

For opportunities available at the Sedgwick Museum  and other University of Cambridge Museums, please visit the Get Involved website.

Historic fossils from Agostino Scilla’s collection within the Sedgwick Museum’s Woodwardian cabinets are currently on display in the Royal Society’s summer exhibition in London. Called ‘Science made Visible: Drawings, Prints, Objects’, the exhibit explores the questions of how and when science become visual; how drawings, diagrams and charts came to be used alongside words and objects; who made them and what made them scientific?

All the Museum and Department were very sad to hear of the death of former staff member Rod Long. Rod, Uncle Rod as he was affectionately known, was to many people the face of the Museum. Dave Norman, our long time Director, has kindly written his recollections of a man who, put simply, we all loved him for his friendly, helpful and kind nature.
