Over 1000 volunteers take part across our five branches.
Volunteers are central to IWM's future and work; they help bring to life the stories of our collections, care for our objects and promote great visitor experiences.

Our Volunteering & Engagement Vision & Mission
We are one of the world’s leading authorities on conflict and its impact on people’s lives – from 1914 through to the present day and beyond.
We expect our stories to change the way people think about war and we are proud to be regarded as essential sights of London, Cambridgeshire and Greater Manchester.
It is our Mission to inspire a deeper understanding of the causes, course and consequences of war through volunteering opportunities that empower, educate and inform.
It is our Vision for people everywhere to seek us out as the place to volunteer to help make accessible, preserve and tell the stories about past conflict and the contemporary world.
To achieve this aspiration we rely on our people (staff and volunteers) and attracting and retaining exceptional people and talent.
