Volunteering

Volunteering at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

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

Volunteers get involved with a whole host of activities from engaging visitors 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.

If you visit the galleries you might spot one of our volunteers 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. You can hear from Rosemary about her experiences of engaging with visitors to the museum in her blog post Visitors to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

Behind the scenes volunteers are often busy supporting our curatorial and collections teams. Read about Izzy’s experience supporting the digitisation and documentation of our Works on Paper Collection in her blog post Volunteering with the works on paper collection. We also have a small number of volunteering opportunities within other teams too, in this blog post Volunteering with the image library you can hear from Jasmine about her work volunteering to support the development of our Digital Image Resource.  In the Volunteering on Inspire 2018 blog post, you can hear from Deminder about her work helping with our annual youth art competition, Inspire.

We are extremely grateful to all our amazing volunteers at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery. If you are interested in volunteering for Birmingham Museums then take a look at  our volunteering page for more details and to see how you can get involved.
