Welcome to volunteering at the Gardens, Libraries, and Museums
We are very grateful to our volunteers, who help to make our spaces and collections more welcoming, interesting, and open to all. Each year, more than 500 volunteers contribute more than 20,000 hours to helping in public-facing and behind-the-scenes roles across the:
- Bate Collection of Musical Instruments
- Botanic Garden and Harcourt Arboretum
- History of Science Museum
- Museum of Natural History
- Pitt Rivers Museum
- Weston Library

The Volunteer Service hopes that volunteers enjoy sharing their enthusiasm, building their confidence, developing their skills, and meeting new people in an inspiring, supportive environment.
