We offer a range of short and long-term flexible volunteering opportunities.

Whether you are experienced in working with our audiences in a museum, heritage or cultural context, or just starting out, there’s usually a role to suit you.

We are happy to cover travel expenses up to £20 and lunch costs up to £10.

Volunteering with Kids in Museums has given me an incredible overview of what’s going on in museums and galleries nationwide, which has proven to be incredibly helpful in my work.Jack Shoulder
