The museum will be closed for Christmas between December 17 and January 6. We reopen January 7.


The museum is entirely volunteer-run and we are always looking for more volunteers. We can make use of a wide variety of skills, both hands-on and office work. Take a look at the list below and see if there is something you think you could help us with. Don't worry if what you can do isn't on the list. We carry out a lot of work in-house and there is a good chance that your skill will be useful to us. You do not need to commit to any hours and any of your time will be appreciated.

  • Collections care
  • Restoration
  • Modelling
  • General DIY and maintenance
  • Carpentry
  • Visitor guides

If you think you can help us that please don't hesitate to get in contact.
