The museum is staffed by volunteer stewards whose role is to ensure that visitors have as enjoyable a time as possible whilst also looking after the collection. We are always looking for more stewards, no previous experience is necessary, just enthusiasm for the history of the area. If you are interested in volunteering to work in a friendly atmosphere, help maintain historic Tenbury and become a valued part of the community, please go to the Volunteer tab and complete the application form there. Or alternatively, come and see the steward on duty or contact us on our email address email@example.com.
During the closed season there is always plenty of conservation work to keep us busy,
so if this interests you more, get in touch.
