Nottingham Museums


We count on our volunteers to assist us in providing outstanding visitor experiences throughout our heritage sites, and we’re constantly seeking additional members to join our team.


Volunteers are vital for Nottingham Museums and personally rewarding to those who get involved.


Make a difference

There are plenty of opportunities available to get involved; from assisting curatorial staff to working with the public and helping with the upkeep of our heritage sites.

You just need buckets of enthusiasm, a friendly can-do attitude and a willingness to get stuck in.
