Volunteering Opportunities


Our Reception Volunteers are the first point of contact for Museum visitors, welcoming them to the Museum. Roles on Reception include admission tickets and shop sales. Training is provided on our user-friendly touch-screen till.

Room Stewarding

Room Stewards are invaluable in supporting interpretation in our exhibition galleries, from highlighting interesting artefacts to listening to visitor stories about Bentley Priory.


Our Hospitality volunteers support the Museum through serving drinks, light lunches and afternoon teas in our welcoming vintage Cafe.

Museum Learning

Learning volunteers support our term-time school visits and our family activities during the school holidays, from arts and crafts to object handling.

Tour Guides

Our Volunteer Guides offer an engaging tour around the Museum, lasting between 45-60 minutes.


Our formal Italian Garden offers a particularly peaceful place for volunteering. Our volunteering gardening session is run on a drop-in basis, once a week.
