Volunteering at the Science Museum

Could you be a Science Museum Volunteer? We are looking for passionate, talented and loyal people to join us.

As a volunteer you can:

  • work in public facing roles that help us engage our visitors with science and technology, helping us create an unforgettable experience for our visitors
  • work directly on unique, rare collections and projects making our objects and knowledge accessible to a wider audience
  • work with our learning team to engage, encourage and inspire young visitors in science
  • gain valuable hands-on experience and skills throughout a variety of Museum roles.

We are extremely grateful to our volunteers whose time and effort have brought so much to the Museum and its visitors. Whatever your background or experience, the Volunteer Programme might just be for you.

How do I become a Science Museum Volunteer?

The Volunteer Programme is open to anyone aged 18 and over – all you need is enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck in. A science or museum background is by no means essential.
