Do you love interacting with kids and families and providing great service? Would you like to be a museum ambassador and gain hands-on experience in the museum environment?

Then this may be the volunteer role for you.

Sydney Living Museums are looking for Museum Volunteers to join their team at the Museum of Sydney.

The Museum of Sydney celebrates the people and events that have shaped the character and soul of this city. In 1788 Governor Phillip chose this site for his official residence. Today, through a diverse and changing program of exhibitions, the Museum of Sydney explores the stories of Sydney from its origins to today, while the remains of the original building can be glimpsed through glass openings in the museum forecourt and foyer.

At the Museum of Sydney volunteers welcome and orient visitors to the museum, engage one-on-one with visitors to our interactive Touch Table experience, and undertake a range of tasks to support our changing exhibition program, such as helping with kids’ craft activities or invigilating.

  • To be a Museum Volunteer you’ll have a friendly manner, great communication skills and love working with adult and family audiences. You’ll be committed to providing great customer service and you’ll know how to be flexible and work in a team.
  • They need volunteers for shifts from 10am-3pm on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.

Museum Volunteers receive a free Sydney Living Museums membership. This includes unlimited free entry to all our museums and properties plus a huge range of member-only benefits!
