Learning Volunteer Programme

Bring science to life for visitors by offering them the chance to handle specimens from the Museum’s vast collections.

Our Learning Volunteer Programme is a great opportunity to further your  interest in natural history and share your passion with other volunteers and visitors.

We welcome anyone aged 18 years and over, regardless of your background or experience. We provide role-specific training, and cover travel costs and lunch (conditions apply).


We are currently looking for weekday volunteers for Wednesdays and Fridays. To get the most out of the experience, we suggest that you volunteer with us weekly for six months.
