Volunteer at Historic Sotterley

More than 500 volunteers support the Museum throughout the year, in a variety of roles. 


Volunteers share their knowledge and enthusiasm by delivering daily eye-opener tours, they help the public enjoy the collection in numerous other ways and support behind-the-scenes activities in almost every department. And that's just the start. Every volunteer offers invaluable support to the Museum, and they get something back from it too.
