Volunteer at the Museum

Home Support Us Volunteer at the Museum

The Holburne Museum isn’t just a collection of objects in a building, it’s also a community of people. We’d love you to come and join us in our work.

We rely on volunteers for a wide range of tasks, from stewarding galleries and welcoming visitors to serving on the Board of Trustees.

We are currently recruiting volunteers for a wide range of positions within the Museum. From now on there will be all kinds of part-time and occasional opportunities available to suit all ages and abilities, and in all areas of our Museum.

Our volunteer programme offers a friendly environment in which to socialise and make new friends. We programme monthly social and learning events designed specifically for our volunteers. These ensure we maintain a high level of welcome and visitor satisfaction across the entire Museum.

If you are interested in joining our team please complete the online form or contact Spencer Hancock at s.hancock@holburne.org or call 01225 388560

What Volunteering means to us 

The roles undertaken by volunteers here at the Museum are considered some of the most important across the organisation. The role a volunteer undertakes allows us to offer the highest quality of visitor experience whilst involving the local community in our work. Without the support of volunteers the Museum would not be able to deliver the range of events, exhibitions, education workshops and care for our collection that we produce. Whether you are able to offer a few hours a month or a day or two a week it is your time and energy that makes the Holburne Museum one of the most exciting, innovative and engaging museums in the country.
