Why volunteer?

  • Feel part of the community – of St Ives, and within the museum itself.
  • Make a difference – there are lots of projects that are run by the volunteers.
  • Gain experience – different volunteers have different roles, so you learn new skills, and you can pick the areas of work you are interested in.
