Get involved in a range of exciting opportunities as a volunteer. Volunteers are vital in supporting the Museum’s work.
More than 500 people donate their time to engage visitors in our galleries and support our scientists and collections behind the scenes.
Our volunteering, internship and work experience programmes are designed to inspire and benefit those taking part as much as they support the Museum. All opportunities have flexible commitment requirements and aim to provide a rewarding and enriching experience for all.
