The National Museum of Australia welcomes and values the contribution of volunteers and recognises the wide range of skills and knowledge they bring with them.
Volunteers are important to the National Museum of Australia because they enhance the programs of the Museum beyond the skills and resources of staff. Moreover, by engaging volunteers the Museum is able to actively involve members of the community in its programs and to promote the two-way transfer of skills and knowledge.
Volunteers range from school students to retired people − all from different walks of life. All of the Museum’s volunteers have one thing in common − a commitment and desire to be involved in the work of the National Museum of Australia. Our volunteers assist staff in various areas of the Museum.
