Volunteering

We need you!

With the promise that museums will be able to open again later this year, the team here at Petersfield Museum are getting excited about finally opening our new look museum. But we can't do this without your help!

Petersfield Museum was established by volunteers back in 1999 and today they continue to play a vital role in everything the museum does. From greeting our visitors at the front desk and ensuring they have the best experience possible to looking after our collections and helping to create amazing events, volunteers are the lifeblood of the museum.

We believe that it is important to give back to our volunteers for all the hard work they do. All of our volunteers are supported in their role by a friendly team of staff and trustees, alongside gaining access to some great benefits including free museum entry, discounted event tickets, savings in our shop and much more.

If you are looking to meet new people, gain new skills, give back to the community or just try something different then volunteering at Petersfield Museum might just be for you!
