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.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us. Unfortunately we are not currently accepting applications for behind the scenes role, but please do check back for further updates.
