Volunteer at Bournemouth Aviation Museum

As a self-supporting charity, the museum is always looking for help. Whether you are an aviation enthusiast or not the likelihood is that you have some skills that could be beneficial to our operations. Many of our volunteers are retired and are looking for something to occupy some of their time. There is a great air of camaraderie amongst the team of volunteers here and we all really enjoy contributing in whatever way we can. We have a variety of roles available and you can choose how much time or which days you want to help out. So, if you want to try something different, why not pay us a visit to find out more.

An essential part of our activity is looking after the visitors to the museum so you could become a Steward to help our visitors around the site or assist in running our shop. Conversely, you may wish to provide hands-on practical help with our conservation projects, which is an essential part of what we do. Our site is mostly open air and most of our exhibits are exposed to the elements, which means they need continuous care and attention. Anyone, with even the most basic engineering/carpentry/painting skills, can be of enormous help. Give it a try, you may be very pleasantly surprised and you will certainly get great satisfaction from what you achieve.

If you are interested then please come in and have a look round and chat to some of the current volunteers or you can e-mail us at enquiries@bamhurn.org
