Why Volunteer With Us?

Make a big difference and join our growing team of volunteers. Volunteers keep our award-winning museum running. They are at the heart of what we do and provide essential support to our organisation. We are looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals to get involved. You may be looking for ways to gain an entry point into an arts organisation, or perhaps you would just like to share your own skills and experience.

Who Can Volunteer?

The running of the museum involves many different skills to suit all working ages. From members of the visitor services team helping to keep the shop, café and admissions process running smoothly, to gallery and learning assistants… even gardening and building maintenance! Ideally you would be able to commit to a certain amount of time on a regular basis – maybe half a day a week or a whole day once a fortnight. We can also offer flexible working for our volunteers.

What We Offer

• Help with career progression and references for your CV

• Great opportunities to socialise and make new friends

• Exclusive invitations to private views and a first look at new exhibitions

• 10% discount in the shop and cafe

• Training in customer service and food hygiene

• Free museum entry year round
