Due to the current Coronavirus situation we are unable to accept new volunteers at the moment. Please do get in touch if you are interested in volunteering in the future and we will get back to you.

Could you be a National Motor Museum Trust Volunteer? We are looking for enthusiastic people to join us.

Our volunteers work either in the Collections Centre or in the Museum, depending on their area of interest.

Volunteers provide us with fantastic support and are an integral part of the National Motor Museum Team.
