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.

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.
