Volunteering

Are you interested in volunteering at the museum this summer?

If the answer is yes, we have roles available! Volunteers are the lifeblood of our sector; we simply couldn’t achieve as much as we do without their dedication and hard work. There is a huge variety of roles undertaken by our current volunteers spanning behind the scenes; collection care, record keeping to customer facing; stewarding and support at events.

For summer 2018 we have some fantastic exhibitions and events which we are looking for passionate and engaging volunteers to support with. Role descriptions below with more information.

Our volunteers tell us that being here is a great way to learn new skills, meet people and to make a difference in the community. We have a long-standing and successful volunteering programme; we simply couldn’t achieve as much as we do without the dedication and hard work that they offer! We are always looking for new faces to join our friendly and supportive team. In return, we offer a stimulating and sociable environment and the chance to work with the Museum experts, both behind the scenes and in more public-facing roles, to bring our fascinating collections to life. We are proud to be accredited with Investing in Volunteers status.
