Volunteers at Lyme Regis MuseumLyme Regis Museum depends on its team of volunteers who fulfil a wide variety of roles. These include: staffing the reception desk, maintenance of the building, IT, historical research, giving talks, helping with publicity, welcoming school groups, fundraising and documenting the collections.

In fact, there are so many things to do that there is bound to be something that suits you, and we have long-term roles or short-term projects to fit in with the time you have available.
