Volunteering at National Waterways Museum, Ellesmere Port


Helping bring our museum to life...

Museums offer fascinating, enjoyable and rewarding volunteering opportunities.  At Ellesmere Port volunteers; 

  • become part of an enthusiastic community of people
  • spend time in a unique and historic, waterside setting
  • learn about fascinating histories and stories
  • work in a sociable and friendly environment
  • use their skills and knowledge in new and rewarding ways
  • hone or learn new skills.

Volunteers also receive free soup or a sandwich in the museum's waterside café when they work a half day or a day.

We need volunteers to help out in many different ways; 

Many volunteers also get involved in helping out with a variety of events at the Museum.

The Boat Museum Society works closely with museum management to organise and develop Museum volunteering. In particular the BMS provides training and support, and new volunteers also receive free membership of the Society.

Whether you have a few hours a month or a few hours a day, we would love to hear from you.
