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.
