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.

Families will be able to join the search for Wally as part of Where’s Wally?
