Perhaps you would like to be more directly involved in the running of the Museum. We are always pleased to welcome volunteers for a hands-on approach to our work. Nantwich Museum relies on a team of about 50 volunteers to ensure its smooth running. There are many different aspects that people can get involved in:
Front of house – Welcoming visitors to the Museum and dealing with general enquiries.
Education – Assisting with education sessions, workshops and tours with the general public.
Exhibition installation – Helping to put up exhibitions in our temporary exhibition spaces.
Collections – This group currently meets on a Monday morning between 10.30am – 12.30pm. They record, examine and care for objects in the Museum’s collection.
Research Group – This group currently meets on a Friday morning at 10.00am. They undertake research for exhibitions, respond to enquiries and help to develop exhibitions.
Shop – Select and order stock and help to arrange our shop displays.
Fundraising and events – Help to organise and assist as fundraising events which take place throughout the year.
Maintenance – Assist with general maintenance and checks on the building.
