Being a volunteer means you can have lots of fun meeting new people, getting to grips with history and giving something back to the local community. It is a wonderful way to spend free time, to help build your CV or to learn something new.
We are happy to take work experience or educational placements and to provide written references at the end of your time with us - although you need to contact us as soon as possible to discuss exactly when you will be available so that we can agree what is the best way forward. If you would like to help the Museum in any way do please fill in our contact form below. We will be delighted to discuss your particular strengths, experience and interests with you on a no-commitment basis”.
