We believe everyone has skills to offer, which can help us to protect and share our heritage. Colchester + Ipswich Museums are fortunate to work with a large number of volunteers, some of whom have supported the organisation for many years. They make invaluable contributions in a variety of ways, from working on conservation projects to meeting and greeting our visitors.

Whether you’re looking to develop skills, give something back or make new friends, volunteering can be a fantastic experience for everyone involved.

New website coming soon!

We share the majority of our volunteer opportunities in March for projects during Spring/Summer and September for Autumn/Winter, although some things do pop up in between or are ongoing.

Ahead of our 2020 Spring/Summer season, we are developing a brand new volunteer website. To find out first about upcoming roles, you check back here, or follow us on social media:
