More than 220 volunteers work at Auckland War Memorial Museum. A wide range of interesting volunteer roles are available making it a truely rewarding way to become closely involved with the Museum.
We are always keen to take on new people with the particular skills we require. Our volunteers range from 18 to their 80s and come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some are retired, some students, and some work either part time or full time. The one thing they all have in common is a deep love for the museum and a willingness to contribute their time, skills and enthusiasm. Find out more about volunteer roles.
