Cambridge Museum of Technology – Welcome Volunteer

Welcome Volunteers are based in the Museum’s shop. They provide a warm and friendly greeting to our visitors. They are also crucial in helping the Museum to raise revenue by selling tickets, shop stock, drinks, and snacks. They answer questions from visitors about the Museum and its services. Where necessary, they direct them to the appropriate member of Museum staff or volunteer.

Please complete an Expression of Interest Form and email it to info@museumoftechnology.com. You can also post it to: Cambridge Museum of Technology, The Old Pumping Station, Cheddars Lane, Cambridge, CB5 8LD.

Projects Abroad

We run bespoke volunteer trips for groups in 25 different countries around the world and these trips can be anything from one week to a month in length.

We make change possible through our projects. Each one solves a specific problem, in a specific place. This might be to save sea turtles from being wiped out in Mexico or fighting gender inequality in Ghana. Our projects run all year round so you can choose your own start and end dates. You can be a part of something that is making long term, meaningful change to people that really need it. Every time a group signs up for one of our projects, they’re investing in a better world.

Since 1992 we have worked with groups from all over the UK, many of whom have gone on to organise even more trips away with us; you can read about their time with Projects Abroad in the Case Studies on our website.
