How to volunteer

A volunteer working on the Natural History collection

It's a quick and easy process to register your interest in volunteering at Reading Museum. We are committed to providing volunteer opportunities and we seek to recruit volunteers from diverse backgrounds.

We appreciate that volunteering means giving up free time and there can be concerns over whether it will be worth it. To make it easier for people we advertise specific roles. Enquiring about volunteering at Reading Museum is easy. There are three basic steps - the documents can be downloaded from the bottom of this page:

  1. Have a look at the available roles
  2. Read our volunteer policy
  3. Fill in and email the registration form to the volunteer co-ordinator

Reading Museum's volunteer co-ordinator will then contact you regarding the role.

Unfortunately we do not have any volunteer roles currently available. We will be shortly advertising new roles, including for the Reading Abbey Revealed project. Keep an eye on our website or follow us on Twitter and Facebook to be notified when a new role becomes available.
