The Museum’s Community Of Volunteers


Over 50 of the Museum’s members are also active Volunteers. Some support the Museum every Tuesday, others attend on family open-days or work behind the scenes.

Our Volunteer Engineers are mainly (but not exclusively) active or retired engineers, scientists or technicians, who give their time to the restoration, installation and maintenance of the Museum’s site, building and its collections.

Others Volunteers support administration and marketing activities, or the provision of education, stewarding, catering or the other support Trustees need to operate the Museum. The Museum’s Trustees and Directors are also volunteers.

On a typical Tuesday, there are between 20 and 30 Volunteers working on site.

New volunteers are welcome at any time. Just send an email to the Chairman via or come along to the Museum any Tuesday between 10am and 4pm and ask to speak to a Director.
