Volunteering At Nidderdale Museum

Nidderdale Museum is entirely run and staffed by a fantastic group of volunteers. Many of our volunteer staff have been helping to run the Museum for many years but we are always thrilled to welcome new people. In particular, the number of volunteers dropped off during the Covid crisis, so we’d love to have more people involved. If you think you could offer us 1 or 2 afternoons each month over the summer to act as a steward, and/or you would like to work on conservation or archives behind the scenes, please get in touch. No previous experience or knowledge of the area is needed – you will pick it all up as you go along, and training will be given.  If you have any particular skills, let us know.  We are certain to be able to use them.

If you would like to get involved and discover more about volunteering opportunities at Nidderdale Museum, please e-mail us at info@nidderdalemuseum.com or call us on: 01423 711 225.

What Do Our Volunteers Do?

Our wonderful volunteer staff undertake a wide variety of tasks to keep things running smoothly including conservation work on exhibits, cataloguing items, dealing with our costumes collection, archiving documents and old photographs and administration. Our friendly volunteer stewards are on duty whenever Nidderdale Museum is open to the public, meeting and greeting visitors, answering questions about exhibits, and running our souvenir shop.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life and are dedicated to keeping this wonderful local museum open to the public for many years to come.

In 2017 we were presented with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
