Group Visits

The Sedgwick Museum welcomes visits from groups. All group visits must be booked in advance, check the Group Visits page for services offered to groups.

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.

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.

Further information about Location, Access and Facilities is available to check against the requirements of your group.

On the 26th of February, 1918 the hospital ship HMHS Glenart Castle left Newport, South Wales, heading for Brest in France. On board were 63 nurses, medical orderlies and officers, along with its crew and 99 wounded patients. One of the medical officers on board was the 49 year-old Captain Lewis Moysey RAMC, a graduate of Caius College and very keen amateur geologist who donated a substantial collection of Carboniferous fossils to the Sedgwick Museum.
