Volunteer Programme

Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery value the tremendous contribution that volunteers make to our service and we are currently developing an exciting new programme of volunteer opportunities across all of our museum sites.

A wide range of diverse new volunteer roles will soon be available, so whatever your interests or skills, there will be a role that will appeal to you. You can be sure that if you join us, you will be a valued member of the team! As volunteering roles become available they will be published on this page.
