Get Involved

Our museums are crammed full of fascinating objects and interesting projects to inspire and enjoy. Your involvement can increase the skills and knowledge base at Amgueddfa Cymru and introduce a fresh perspective to our work.

This could range from helping visitors enjoy handling objects in our famous galleries, to cataloguing specimens behind the scenes with specialist staff, or even mucking in at the beautiful historic gardens.

These are the national collections, which belong to the people of Wales, so why not join us in managing, conserving and showcasing our heritage?

Amgueddfa Cymru have welcomed volunteers from banks, the civil service as well as groups from local charities and clubs. These groups have helped the museum with large projects such as gardening, farm work and even help organise archival materials.
