Volunteering is vital to the Horniman Museum and Gardens.
Along with a supportive learning environment, we offer the chance to take part in important pieces of work at the Museum, while gaining and insight into the management of a large collection and busy public programme.
Due to high demand for volunteering we can only accept applications for roles listed on this page. At present we do not have any roles available but do keep checking back for any new opportunities.
