Volunteering is vital to the Horniman Museum and Gardens.

Engage Volunteer Programme

The Horniman Museum and Gardens welcomes a wide range of people, including many young families, each year. Our Engage volunteers enable visitors to have closer contact with the Museum’s collections through the hands-on displays in Nature Base and the object-handling trolley. Volunteers also help visitors in temporary exhibitions, and in the Gardens during the summer.

All necessary training is given – no prior experience is needed.

Please see the role description below for details:

We are currently accepting applications for this role. Please note, we are particularly looking for those with availability on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
