Birmingham Museums Trust values the tremendous contribution that volunteers make to our service and we have an exciting programme of volunteer opportunities across all of our museum sites.
Volunteer opportunities will be shown here.
House guide (Heritage Sites)
If you like meeting people and enjoy Birmingham history there are opportunities to volunteer at Birmingham's fascinating Heritage Sites - Aston Hall, Blakesley Hall, Soho House, Museum of the Jewellery Quarter and Sarehole Mill.
Gallery Interpreters (Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery)
We need volunteers to provide a friendly and approachable presence in some of our galleries, including the Staffordshire Hoard Gallery, the new Birmingham History Galleries and our very varied temporary exhibitions, to help people to get the most from their visit to us.
Things we need help with include:
You will gain an in-depth knowledge of some of our collections, customer service and interpretation skills, the opportunity to undertake relevant training and the chance to see how museums work behind the scenes, including conservation work being undertaken on the Hoard.
All training and a comprehensive induction will be provided along with all the encouragement and support in getting to know BMAG and our collections.
If you can help, please fill in the simple application form and return it to Pat Ferrins at Pat.Ferrins@birminghammuseums.org.uk or by post to: Pat Ferrins, Assistant Visitor Services Manager, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, Chamberlain Square, Birmingham, B3 3DH.
