Volunteering

Volunteering for Norfolk Museums Service can be a very rewarding and sociable experience. You'll meet like-minded people, gain new experience, learn new skills and support Norfolk's heritage.

There are a variety of different roles available within Norfolk Museums Service at our ten museums across the county.  Whether you are interested in helping with our collections, conservation, archaeology, activities and events, researching, gardening, sewing and stitching, customer service, stewarding, administration or photography, our museums have this and much more to offer.  We will offer all our volunteers support, training and a friendly environment.

To become a volunteer with us, we will usually ask you to complete an application form, attend an information interview and supply two references.  If the role requires it, you may be asked to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (at no cost to you).

Below you can find details of our current and latest roles.
