Volunteering is an excellent way to learn new skills and meet new people whether you are interested in getting into a career in museums, or would just like to help out. Volunteers will gain wide experience of museum work whilst helping out with many of the activities. 

Here at Foxton Canal Museum you get to volunteer in an idyllic setting surrounded by incredible history and you can watch the boats go up and down the locks!
