Volunteer with us:

The Peace Museum has a small team of dedicated staff and is supported by volunteers to allow us to continue our ambitious exhibitions and education programmes, whilst opening at least three days a week to visitors. All roles are flexible and we are open to discussing with you what kinds of experience or tasks you are looking for. A usual day volunteering with us is between 10am till 4pm. Volunteers are usually on site one day a week but it could be more during busy periods. We can be flexible to accommodate your schedule. 

Roles

General Museum Volunteer: Assist with opening to the public by being on reception, welcoming visitors, answering questions, overseeing the shop and donations, general housekeeping and any other tasks which can assist with the daily running of the museum. This is an ideal role for someone wanting to get some introductory experience into working in a museum, or for someone who is interested in peace and/or museums and is looking for a casual volunteer position. 

Collections Volunteer: Working alongside our Curator, collections volunteers assist with caring for the collection. This includes cleaning and conservation work, documentation, working on the backlog and and other tasks that may be required. This is an ideal position for a student undertaking museum studies or similar, who is looking for specific museums collection experience. We will consider this role being done as a work placement alongside your studies. 

Trustee: The Museum is looking to expand it's board and welcome new trustees with specific experience.
