Museum of Cambridge

Thank you for your interest in volunteering!

We are currently recruiting home-based Learning Volunteers, as well as individuals with a specialism or interest in fundraising.  

Learning Volunteer (home-based)

What would you be doing? 

This is a home-based, flexible role that offers you the opportunity to be responsible for designing and delivering learning resources catered at families. 

As a Learning Volunteer, you will be thinking of and designing activities that help families learn about different topics through our collections. 

You will be researching the collections and working closely with the Collections Team, to inform the activities you design, in consultation with the rest of the Education Team and with the support of Florencia Nannetti, Community and Visitor Engagement Officer.

We are expanding our online offer and so many of the activities you’ll design will feature on our website.


We'd love to hear from you, please get in touch by submitting our online application form or email

We are always happy to talk through our opportunities and answer any questions that you might have.

If there isn't an opportunity for you are the moment, there are other ways you can support us:

  • Visit the museum, find our opening hours here.  
  • Like, retweet or comment on our social media pages: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or post a positive memory or comment about us on our social media streams.
  • Sign up to our mailing list and receive regular updates from the museum.  
  • Make a note in your diary or calendar to check this website at later date or get in touch to ask about future opportunities.
  • You could make donation to help us through this difficult time. Any amount, big or small, helps enormously. You could also encourage others to do the same!

Thank you!
