Volunteering at the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter
When 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 these brilliant guides give fascinating 45 minute tours of the factory.
There is even a chance 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 and we love now being able to welcome people when they arrive at the museum doors.
The Museum of the Jewellery Quarter is open all year round. See current Volunteer Opportunities at Birmingham Museums.
