The museum offers an exciting and rewarding range of volunteering opportunities. What could you do?

Our volunteers play an important role, and are involved in everything from meeting the public, running the shop, undertaking research, to helping manage our collections.

Others are involved in responding to media and press enquiries, updating our web site, supporting our learning work with schools and running children’s activities. Some even become Trustees. The list isn’t exhaustive. We aim to be as flexible as possible with volunteering.

We are always on the look out for new volunteers for specific roles within the Museum. If you are interested, why not contact us using the form below?
