Our volunteers are an invaluable part of the Museum. Without their dedication we could not do our work and we are immensely grateful for their time, expertise and enthusiasm.

There are many different ways for you to get involved and gain museum work experience. As well as welcoming people at the Museum Information Desk and stewarding the galleries, our volunteers can lead tour groups around the Museum and help out at public events.

Our volunteer team enjoys special exhibition private views, seasonal parties and group visits to other museums and galleries. We believe we offer some of the most enjoyable voluntary work in London!

Current opportunities

We are currently looking for volunteers to help out with gallery stewarding and reception duties, so if you are interested in weekday or weekend volunteering in London get in touch. Unfortunately, the Museum is not currently resourced to provide work experience or volunteering opportunities for under 16s.

To join the Volunteer Team contact Vincent Wright, Visitor Engagement Manager, on +44 (0)20 7841 3611 or send an email to volunteers@foundlingmuseum.org.uk
