Being a small, self-sufficient, independent Museum, we’ve been hit hard by the current pandemic as have many other businesses. You can visit us, or support in a variety of other ways:

  1. You can order items from our online shop.
  2. You can book an exclusive private group tour- please contact for further information.
  3. You can make a donation- please contact for further information.
  4. If you can’t support us financially, we’d love you to help us by sharing our online content and encouraging your network of friends and family to do the same.

We’re always on the look out for wonderful volunteers to support us as Galley Explainers covering day to day visitor engagement or activities such as: Handling kit, Family activities, Welcome talks and tours, School groups, Family / Open Days, Commercial events, and even Office admin support.

No previous Museum volunteering experience is necessary, onsite induction will be given, and additional training will be offered as required and where relevant.

This is an unpaid role and travel expenses shall not be reimbursed, but in exchange for your kind help and good humour we’re able to offer a unique and enjoyable volunteering experience plus an invite to the annual Volunteers’ party and to a summer season Ceremonial event.
