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, the object-handling trolley, and activities in the African Worlds. 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.

If you're interested in joining us, complete the application form below and send it to volunteering@horniman.ac.uk. We’ll get back to you to let you know if we’d like to invite you to our next Taster Day.

There will be a taster session for engage applicants on Tuesday 6th October 2015  5-7pm
