Get Involved

Volunteering is a great way to support the Museum – as well as gain new experiences, new skills and socialise with like-minded people. Volunteers are a vital part of our Museum and help across the departments in a variety of roles – from welcoming visitors, helping with arts and crafts sessions, to cataloguing the collection and dealing with public enquiries. We are always thankful for volunteers’ gift of time as well as the diverse skills and experiences they bring- so we do our best to make sure that the experience is rewarding, well managed and enjoyable. All of our volunteers receive an induction into the work and daily life of the Museum. We want our volunteers to feel welcome and that they are an integral part of the Museum. We have an induction checklist to ensure that volunteers are given all the information they need.

Due to the time it takes to train collections volunteers, there are guidelines for volunteers wishing to work with collections. Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering with the collections.
