As a Volunteer
The Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum is keen to attract volunteers to help the small and dedicated team to run the Museum. There are a variety of volunteer roles, to suit different interests:
This is a great opportunity for someone to gain experience, develop skills knowledge and interest, working in an accredited museum. As a charity we rely on the help of volunteers to sustain the museum for future generations. We are a small friendly team who are passionate about the museum but could do with a few more pairs of hands.
All training will be given, no experience necessary although an interest in military history is desirable.
