Volunteering Opportunities

We are always looking for new volunteers to help staff the museum and keep it running on a day to day basis. There will usually be roles from manning the shop, general maintenance and administrative tasks to accountancy and legal work. We also need people who can offer their time and skills to help with our marketing, publicity, promotion, graphic design and artwork. Whatever you can offer in the way of skills and experience, it’s likely we will be able to find a role for you.
If you know of anybody or you yourself would like to volunteer please contact us at the museum.
It is the support of our loyal volunteers that keeps the museum open. Not to mention, as a volunteer, you’ll get to see the exhibits as often as you like!
