Volunteer with us!

We are looking for Welcome Team Volunteers to greet and engage with our visitors. 

Our Volunteers are at the heart of the Garden Museum; welcoming and engaging with our visitors throughout the building. As we begin to welcome more visitors, we find ourselves with more opportunities for volunteers within our Welcome Team. 

So if you are looking for experience of working in a museum, have a few hours to spare a week or just love engaging with the public then please get in touch. 


“Lovely museum. Great people volunteer here. Great exhibitions we get to see. Gaining confidence and skills on the shop and the front desk.”


“I started after I graduated because I wanted gain experience in museums, and it seemed like a nice place to be. I don’t have a garden so I find being here is a great substitute.”



“Everyone is so nice! Volunteer lunches are delicious, and it’s just a lovely space to spend a few hours a week in and interact with people.”


No experience is necessary, but we are looking for people who are flexible and reliable, and who can flourish as members of a close team. A keen interest in gardens and gardening and/or museums is desirable but not essential.

Volunteer benefits include volunteer outings, a 20% discount in the shop, and complimentary lunch in the Garden Café. 

If you are interested please go to for more information and to download the application form. Please complete and return the form to 

We are particularly looking for people available to volunteer on Mondays, Thursdays and at the weekend. Please state on the form which days you are available to do. 

Volunteers must be 18 years old or over.
