Our growing band of museum members include volunteers who regularly support our activities with their time and expertise, many helping the museum when it is open each Tuesday and on family open-days.
Our volunteer engineers are mainly (but not exclusively) active or retired engineers, scientists or technicians, who give their time to the restoration, installation and maintenance of the museum’s site, building and its collections.
Other volunteers support administration and marketing activities, and the provision of education, stewarding, catering or the other support Trustees needed to operate the museum. The museum’s Trustees and Directors are also volunteers.
On a typical Tuesday, there are between 20 and 30 volunteers working on site.
