Volunteering

Volunteering at the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter

The Museum of the Jewellery Quarter is a perfectly preserved workshop in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter with a perfectly sized volunteer team. 

If you visit this gem of a museum you may be lucky enough to have a tour from one of our Heritage Interpreters. This team of volunteers allows us to welcome more and more people to this very popular museum and to tell the tales of what life was like as a jeweller in the 1980s and before.

This is certainly not our easiest role but for those who would like a bit of a challenge there is lots of time for learning and shadowing before delivering your first tour. When our volunteers feel ready they give fascinating tours of the factory. Read about Matt’s experience volunteering at the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter in his Heritage Interpreter case study.

There is even a chance for our Heritage Interpreters to learn how to demonstrate the machinery if the team are feeling brave. We’ve been able to do far more tours than we thought would be possible thanks to this team.

We are extremely grateful to have an amazing volunteer team at the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter.
