Volunteering at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is a world class museum in the heart of the city centre and has a fabulous volunteer team to match. 

Volunteers get involved with a whole host of activities from gallery interpreting on a day to day basis and working with families in school holidays to conservation cleaning, assisting our curators, working with archaeological finds and supporting documentation projects. The list goes on and on!

If you visit the galleries you’ll probably spot our Gallery Interpreters talking to the public about our collections and directing people around the museum, this wonderful team help to make sure all our visitors have the best possible time with us. Our Activities Assistants are also on hand in the holidays to engage visitors with object handling and craft activities. Read about Samina’s volunteering experience in her Summer Activities Assistant case study (PDF).

Behind the scenes our Curator's Assistants are supporting our curators with research and sometimes even gallery installs. Read about Mariella’s experience working for the Collecting Birmingham project in her Curators Assistant case study (PDF). Conservation Assistants are also hard at work helping our conservation team and some wonderful people give their time to log archaeological finds too as Archaeological Finds Recording Assistants. Read about Ayesha’s experiences volunteering as a Long Term Loans Assistant and Silver Project Conservation Assistant in her Loans and Conservation case study (PDF).

This is just a snapshot of the volunteering roles we have and the scope of volunteering at the Museum and Art Gallery is huge. We are extremely grateful to have amazing volunteers doing varied and interesting work.
