Volunteer

Ashburton Museum are a great team to work with. Our volunteers are passionate, dedicated and love sharing their enthusiasm for museum programs and services.

We regularly recruit new team members as vacancies arise when current volunteers go on to paid work or take on new challenges.

Museum volunteers work across all areas of the museum, including front of house, archives, collections, exhibitions, cataloguing, photo editing, and more. We aim to build new skills and tailor tasks to individual strengths.

YOUR VOLUNTARY COMMITMENT WILL BRING GREATER KNOWLEDGE, MORE UNDERSTANDING AND THE PLEASURE OF NEW ENCOUNTERS THAT ENABLE YOU TO SHARE THIS HERITAGE WITH OTHERS.

Our front desk volunteer team help visitors discover activities at the museum, share info about what’s on, and encourage people to make the most of our excellent facilities. If this sounds like you, we’d love show you what’s involved.

Volunteering at Ashburton Museum is a great way to meet others, gain new skills and share a passion for our district.
