We're Open!

We are so pleased to welcome you back to the Sedgwick Museum. Come and explore our new exhibits Deep Earth Explorers and Dawn of the Wonderchicken, as well as meet Iggy the Iguanodon and Mary Anning's ichthyosaurs.   Pick up a free family activity pack at the entrance, and staff will be on hand to answer your questions.  

We have limited the number of people per visit for your safety and comfort and the Museum has a one-way route in place. Toilet and shop facilities will be open.

The safety of our visitors and staff is our priority. For information on the safety measures we have put in place and how you can help please click here.

Getting here

We recommend travelling to the Museum by walking or cycling, if you can. Where this is not possible, use public transport or drive, using Government Guidance to help keep yourself, other passengers and transport staff safe.

To reach the entrance to the Museum please come through the archway on Downing Street, turn left and walk towards the large flight of stone steps with the dinosaur sculpture outside. A safe queueing zone has been set up for visitors here. Please wait at the bottom of the steps and socially distance from other visitors until staff welcome you into the Museum at your ticketed entry time.


If you have any access needs or require use of the lift during your visit, if possible please let us know in advance when booking your ticket or by emailing the Museum before you visit.

More detailed information about access in the Museum can be found here.

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.
