SeaCity Volunteering

“Working with volunteers is always so rewarding. It’s inspiring to see people bring their skills, knowledge and energy to our learning sessions and workshops – volunteers and participants get so much out of the experience.”
Emily, Learning and Engagement Officer

Our dedicated community of volunteers help us to make our visitor’s experience a memorable one. From object handling to special events, volunteers have helped to ensure the continued success of our museum and the visitor’s experience. We welcome volunteers of a variety of ages and backgrounds, all with one thing in common – a love of sharing history!

Volunteering could be for you if you would like to:

  • Share your knowledge of Southampton
  • Learn something new
  • Enhance your CV and skills
  • Meet like-minded people
  • Volunteer at Southampton’s top maritime museum

We recruit volunteers aged 18 and over on a monthly basis to available roles. Please use the contact form at the bottom of this page to let us know you are interested in volunteering with us!

Once we have your form, we will contact you directly to let you know when the next round of recruitment will take place and to invite you to come and see us here at the museum.

If you have any questions about volunteering at all, please feel free to contact the Volunteer Coordinator using the form below.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Object Handling

Bring artefacts to life by facilitating Object Handling sessions with visitors

I really enjoy doing object handling at SeaCity Museum. This role let me get to know Southampton’s history and connect to the locals and the world – the overseas visitors from nearest Spain or even the other side of the world from Japan, and Australia. The visitors hold the artefacts to experience the past. I have lots of amazing memories of visitor interactions at SeaCity Museum.
