National Railway Museum

Our skilled and enthusiastic volunteers bring our visitors closer to the incredible story of the railways, helping them understand the awe-inspiring engineering on display.

Our volunteers are vital to our work—by joining them you’ll be helping to make a real difference to the museum.


People volunteer with us for a whole host of reasons:

  • Gain museum-based work experience
  • Develop new skills
  • Meet people and make friends
  • Support the museum
  • Have fun!
