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. 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 Opportunities webpage here.

Women’s contribution to geological science can be ‘seen and heard’ in the Collections at the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences, and especially in the Archives.

On Sunday 8th March 2020 it’s International Women’s Day, an opportunity to celebrate women's achievement as well as raising awareness and taking action for equality. The Sedgwick Museum is using this important date in the calendar to talk about its collections from a different narrative, one that is equally valid but not previously visible.
