Volunteering at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

Our volunteers at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery are involved in a whole host of activities from gallery interpreting on a day to day basis, or working with families in school holidays to conservation cleaning, assisting our curators, working with archaeological finds and documentation projects.

The list goes on and on, so consider this a very brief introduction to some of the volunteering going on at the Museum and Art Gallery. 

If you visit the galleries you’ll probably spot some incredibly friendly volunteers kitted out in white t-shirts talking to the public about our collections and directing people around the museum. These are our Gallery Interpreters and they are a wonderful team who help to make sure all our visitors have the best possible time with us.

Find out what Kendall has to say about her time as a Gallery Interpreter .

If visitor facing roles aren't for you then you might still be in luck. We have a team of Curator's Assistants who give their time to help the curators with research and sometimes even gallery installs! These roles come up less frequently but they do exist. Zoe has written a blog post about being a Curator's Assistant  working with the Curator of World Cultures.

Maybe you’d enjoy working hands on with our collections? We have a fantastic team of volunteers supporting the Conservation department and some wonderful people giving their time to log archaeological finds too. Find out about the work of the Archaeological Finds Recording Assistants .

The scope of volunteering at the Museum and Art Gallery is huge, from our Art Librarians to Conservation Assistants, we have amazing volunteers doing varied and interesting work.

Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is open all year round and you’ll regularly find new opportunities to get involved advertised online. See current Volunteer Opportunities at Birmingham Museums.
