Volunteering at Royal Museums Greenwich is a great way to develop your skills while supporting us and enhancing the experience of our visitors.

Do you have some free time and enjoy helping people? Are you interested in ships, seafarers and how the oceans have shaped our history? Or do astronomy, art or architecture float your boat?

If so, you might like to apply to become part of our dedicated team of volunteers.
