Due to the current guidelines on social distancing, we are currently unable to offer volunteering opportunities at the museum. We hope to change this as soon as possible, and will re-open opportunities as soon as it is safe to do so.
At the Scottish Maritime Museum we highly value the dedication and commitment of our volunteers. We offer interesting and meaningful placements and continue to create these opportunities.
Great volunteering opportunity at the Scottish Maritime Museum

People volunteer for many reasons. Some of the benefits of volunteering include: meeting new people; a productive way to spend time; developing or enhancing skills; trying something different; an addition to your CV; gaining experience for employment; contributing to a Museum of national significance.
Unfortunately we cannot provide volunteers with travel expenses at this time.
Yes, PPE and uniforms are provided by the Museum.
Volunteers are free to take holidays. If you wish to take a longer period of leave, please speak to the Curator beforehand.
There is no minimum commitment but we recommend that volunteers attend once a week. Visitor Service volunteers will be expected to fit in with the weekly rota.
