Volunteer Programme

The work of the conservation laboratory is greatly aided by its volunteers. Their work involves basic cleaning of specimens, re-packaging in conservation grade foams or tissue or making made-to-measure boxes. Many of the Museum’s specimens were packed in drawers using materials that degrade over time or produce acids that could damage the specimens. These materials were used before modern conservation grade materials were available.

All volunteer places are currently filled in the Conservation lab. Find out more about our vounteering opportunities here.
