http://www.sedgwickmuseum.org/

The Sedgwick Museum’s collections are an important resource for research, learning and enjoyment. The Museum is responsible for the care of approximately 2 million specimens from around the world, encompassing more than 4.5 billion years of Earth’s history.

The Museum’s collections are organised broadly into five major categories – Palaeontology (fossils), Mineralogy (minerals), Petrology (igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks), Building Stones and the ‘Woodwardian Collection’. The Sedgwick Museum also houses a collection of Archive material, containing records from the 17th century to the present day.
