The Sedgwick has a collection of more than 1 million rocks, minerals and fossils. The museum was built in memory of Adam Sedgwick and started with Dr John Woodward’s bequest of his fossil collection in 1728 (still on display in its original cabinets). Displays include a gallery of minerals and gemstones, rocks collected by Charles Darwin on the ‘Voyage of the Beagle’, dinosaurs from the Jurassic and Triassic, and fossils from the local area including a hippopotamus from the nearby Barrington gravel pits.
