The museum would not be able to function without the work of our dedicated volunteer team. From the day to day running of the museum and shop, to helping with school visits and designing and installing exhibits, there is a lot to get stuck into as a volunteer at Cynon Valley Museum.

We currently have around 50 volunteers who are involved in a series of tasks, from welcoming visitors and looking after the shop to developing educational activities and talking to visiting groups about the history of the Cynon Valley.

We are always looking for new people to join our volunteer team and have a wide range of opportunities for you to get involved in.

  • Front of house roles including displaying items in the shop, greeting visitors and customer support
  • Education development – putting together our loan boxes and developing activities for schools
  • Translation
  • Event photography and photography of the collection
  • Collections-based roles including auditing, exhibition development and research

All levels of experience are welcome and there is no minimum or maximum time we ask you to commit.

If you’re looking to make friends, gain experience in a museum, or give back to the local community, please get in touch.
