Support Us


Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our volunteering page!

The opening of the Museum of Making has resulted in an unprecedented amount of interest from people wishing to kindly give their time to Derby Museums as a volunteer.  It’s an incredible and wonderful thing that people are leaving our museums feeling inspired to take part, however, it means that we are currently unable to keep up with the level of new enquiries we are receiving. For this reason, we are temporarily unable to accept volunteer applications or enquiries at this time. 

We are currently taking the time to catch up, evaluate our volunteer roles and ensure that we are supporting our current volunteers in the best way that we can. Meaningful co-production is at the heart of all we do, so this was no small decision to make for our Co-production team. We are hoping to be able to accept new enquiries and applications in April, please check this page for updates.

With huge thanks for your interest in volunteering with Derby Museums, and for your patience and understanding whilst we try to catch up with things.
