Museum Stewards, Tudor House Museum
Tudor House Museum has been run almost entirely by volunteers since 2004 when the Worcester Heritage & Amenity Trust took over the running of the museum from the city council. It is a beautiful 16th Century building, once three weaver’s cottages, that now interprets the history of the house and the city for visitors. Based in one of the city’s oldest streets, it has won awards for excellent customer service standards.
They are looking for Museum stewards to welcome visitors at the gate, help them explore the building, discovering the histories and stories within. You will need to be customer focused, outgoing, diligent with research (supporting materials are provided), able to interact with a diverse audience and have an enthusiasm for delivering history.
There are opportunities to undertake research into areas that interest you most, with a view to expanding this into an exhibition; to get involved with collection care and education days; help with events and develop your own.
They don’t insist that their volunteers wear period costume, but it is available if you would like to!
All volunteers are supported by the Volunteer Co-ordinator, Museum Manager and rest of their friendly volunteer team. There are training and social opportunities for all volunteers. They very much encourage volunteers to make the role their own.
As Tudor House Museum moves into its next stage of development and expansion, this is a really exciting time to get involved.> Apply Now
