The Museum of Richmond has numerous volunteering, work experience and placement opportunities, including Trustees, Visitor Services Volunteers, Exhibition Volunteers and Collections Volunteers. When we have further volunteer roles and projects available, you will find details of them below.
We can also offer work experience to university students and school students aged over 16 and those working towards their Duke of Edinburgh or Arts Award. However, we do get a lot of requests so ask for at least two months notice to ensure that we can properly plan your placement to that you get the most possible from your time with us.
PLEASE NOTE: we are unable to offer any further work experience placements until January 2024. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause. If you are looking for a placement in a museum or heritage setting, why not try contacting one of the other heritage sites in West London – you can find more details on the West London Museums Group website

World War Two Workshop Volunteer
We need friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to share their experiences of what it was like growing up during, or just after WWII with visiting school children. The idea is that children are so often told what it was like for adults during the war, it would be great for them to be able to talk to people who can tell them what it was like for children during the War.
