The RD Milns Antiquities Museum welcomes volunteers from all walks of life to assist in the maintenance of the Museum's collections and their ongoing development. Volunteers have the opportunity to work closely with museum staff and the collections, undertaking tasks in conservation, artefact research, and visitor services.
Volunteers are asked to contribute one morning (9am - 12pm) or afternoon (1pm - 5pm) session per week during university teaching periods. They are required to undertake an interview, and an occupational health and safety induction, and must be able to work under the supervision of Museum staff or other advanced volunteers.
Places are strictly limited and are generally advertised each semester.
Please contact the Museum Office directly on (07) 3365 3010 or email@example.com to discuss ways to get involved.
The RD Milns Antiquities Museum offers work experience opportunities for students in grade 10-12 throughout the year. Places are limited and are generally three days in length. Priority will be given to students whose schools also visit the museum. Students work alongside the Manager and Administration Staff in day-to-day museum activities.
