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.

W.B.R. King was awarded the Military Cross for bravery with the British Expeditionary Force before being evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940. He was a Cambridge graduate and World War I veteran who pioneered the use of geological expertise in the theatre of war. King went on to become the 11th Woodwardian professor of geology in 1944.

The recent discovery of Ice Age mammoth and rhino remains near Cambridge became national news. By coincidence, the Sedgwick Museum at the University of Cambridge has a new exhibit which tells the story of late Ice Age times and how the life and environments of Cambridgeshire were dramatically altered by climate change.
