Volunteer at the museum

A large part of the success of our programs is due to our wonderful group of committed volunteers who help in all aspects in the running of the Museum. Their efforts are greatly appreciated by Museum staff as well as the teachers and students who always comment on their friendly nature and willingness to assist.


If you are a UNSW student, or a member of the public with interest or experience in Health, science and medical fields we would love to have you as part of our volunteer team. At present, we are postponing the next volunteer intake indefinitely due to the ongoing pandemic. To receive an alert for the next sign-up period, enter your details here.

Our Museum volunteers help with a wide range of activities. Their main role is to help interpret our collection for the many school students who visit each year, but other roles include helping run major museum events for Brain Awareness Week and UNSW Open Day as well as helping with office support and social media activities.
