The Education Team

The Education Team at the Sedgwick Museum are available to help you plan your visit and talk you through classroom work on your topic. From dinosaurs, to the rock cycle or volcanoes, we have tips and resources that you might find helpful. You can send us an email or book a planning session with our Education team. 

Planning Sessions
We recommend booking a pre-visit meeting with our Education Co-ordinator to make the most of your group visit to the museum. In this session, you will get a short tour of the museum, highlighting objects appropriate to your area of interest, and a chance to plan your visit and work to support it in the classroom.

Teacher Training
The University of Cambridge Museums (UCM) are working together to provide new training opportunities for teachers to learn more about getting the most out of museum visits - look out for INSET sessions which will be advertised on the UCM website.

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
