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 Horniman's collections through the hands-on displays in Nature Base and the object-handling trolley. Volunteers also help visitors in the Gardens during the summer, and will be engaging visitors in the upcoming Butterfly House.

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

Please see the role description below for details:
