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.

Until Covid restrictions have eased we are unfortunately unable to offer volunteering opportunities within our museums and sites. We will update any change to this in line with government guidelines.

We do have some opportunities which can be undertaken from home and will update any volunteering opportunities detailed on this page. If you are interested in being kept up to date with volunteering opportunities, please contact us on the details given below.
