Heritage Helping Hands

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are team players, with an eye for detail, willingness to learn and be aware of relevant health and safety issues, and good level of physical fitness. Experience or an interest in craft/trade is desired as this is a hands on role.

As a helping hands volunteer you will get to see areas of the Museum that are usually off limits to members of the public and see behind the scenes of upcoming exhibitions, as you assist with their installation.
