Castle Donington Museum is entirely run by volunteers, so your interest in volunteering with us is really appreciated by the Museum Trust. Support from people like you is essential if the museum is to continue to develop and grow in the community. We hope you will consider volunteering with us.

We can offer you varied and interesting opportunities to work with like-minded people in various fields.


Acting as a Steward when the museum is open to the public

Working with a team to catalogue and care for the museum’s Collection

Joining the garden team

Helping to look after our listed 17th Century home

Publicity and forward planing

Social and fund raising events

Volunteers can be involved with any or all of the activities above. When required, training is provided, either “in house” or through attending training days arranged by the East Midlands Museum Services or the Leicestershire Museum Forum. All of our Volunteers are covered by our Insurance Policy whilst working on behalf of the Museum.
