Volunteering at the Science Museum

Our volunteering programme is closed during the closure of all museums in the Science Museum Group.

When the museums re-open we will share volunteering opportunities on our vacancies page. If you have an enquiry about our volunteer programme please email

As a volunteer you could:

  • Help us engage our visitors with science and technology in one of our visitor-facing roles, helping us create an unforgettable experience for our visitors
  • Get involved with our unique collections and help make our objects and records accessible to a wider audience
  • Support 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, our Volunteer Programme is open to all.

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.
