Work Experience

When you think about museum staff, you might remember the person who welcomed you or perhaps led a guided tour; you may even imagine someone wearing a lab coat.

In reality, there are many different roles in museums and our team have a wide range of skills.

Why not join us for work experience and see for yourself?
