Would you like to volunteer at a Cambridge museum and gain valuable experience? Maybe you are a student who would like a work experience placement. Maybe you are passionate about the ancient world or classical sculpture. Or maybe you have a little spare time and would like to give back.

The Museum of Classical Archaeology is a small museum with limited resources – and we need your help. Most volunteer roles don't require any specialist knowledge and we will provide training and support to help you get the most of your time with us. Many of our volunteering opportunities involve flexible time commitments and should benefit you as much as they benefit us.
