One of our most important aims is to make a positive difference in people’s lives through the exhibitions, programmes and services we deliver.
This is where you come in.
Volunteers are essential to the work that we do. You can help to ensure that all of our museums and galleries are innovative, imaginative, creative, totally inclusive, secure and sustainable.
In turn, we hope volunteering will help you to develop new skills and interests, meet friendly, like-minded people, gain confidence and a sense of well-being, and even strengthen your CV.

Work Experience - Update 23/6/21

We hope to be able to respond to enquiries soon but please bear with us as we transition to new ways of working in our wonderful museums and galleries. We will ensure that the information is kept up to date and let you know when we are accepting applications again.
