Would you like to join our volunteer team?

Volunteers are an essential part of what we do at Lyme Regis Museum and we are looking for new people to join our team. Training and support is given and volunteering with us will give you the opportunity to:

  • Meet our visitors from all around the world
  • Make new friends & enjoy social events
  • Share your skills & experience
  • Acquire new knowledge about Lyme & its history
  • Give support to a local organisation

If you enjoy meeting people and would like to find out more then we would be delighted to hear from you.

Hello. Thank you for looking into volunteering with us. We really appreciate your interest because our volunteer team are vital to the museum. 

Why volunteer?

By volunteering with us you’ll be supporting the museum in a very practical way. You’ll be joining a team of more than 80 volunteers, so it’s a great way to meet new people, and it’s a very rewarding experience.

You’ll also be able to use and share your skills, while developing new ones too – in a museum there’s always something new to learn! With so many different roles to choose from, there’s bound to be one to suit you. How much time you give is up to you. And don’t forget, volunteering is great for your CV!

We’ll support you every step of the way

No experience or special knowledge is needed as you’ll get full training and ongoing support – just bring your enthusiasm! There will also be plenty of tea to keep you going!

Here’s what you could be doing  

There are lots of jobs you could do from meeting and greeting visitors on the front desk to working in the shop, maintenance or even IT or marketing. If you enjoy meeting people, you might like to consider becoming a gallery guide, giving talks to visitors or helping at events. There’s also the opportunity to be involved in researching and documenting the collections.


Sounds exciting?  We’d love to hear from you!
