The Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences is the oldest of the University of Cambridge museums, having been established in 1728 as the Woodwardian Museum. Since then the collection has grown from about 10,000 fossils, minerals and rocks, to at least 2 million.
This is a great little museum literally jam packed with treasures . I love the first geological map of Britain drawn by William Smith. I also love the 1000’s of fossils organised through time periods.
There is so much to see it’s worth popping in whenever you visit Cambridge to look at something new .
