Volunteering with Museums & Galleries Edinburgh is a great way to gain new skills and experiences, learn about museum work, make new friends and provide a valuable contribution to our service. 

Due to ongoing restrictions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are currently only able to provide remote volunteering opportunities. Whenever a new remote volunteering opportunity becomes available it will be posted on this page and via our social media channels.
