Volunteering at the Roman Baths

The Roman Baths relies on volunteers to help with the behind the scenes work. Volunteers work with our diverse collection which contains local archaeological material from all time periods, including Prehistoric, Roman, Medieval and Georgian material. Our collection even contains spa equipment from Bath’s Victorian Treatment Centre.

  • Volunteering work helps to develop the museum and provides a fun opportunity through which you can develop new skills and experiences.
  • Volunteering is a great way to get to know new people and become active within the community.
  • Volunteering at a museum is a great, and valuable, starting point for a career in museums or heritage.

If you are interested, please contact us on Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. Feel free to contact us or drop in and pick up our volunteering leaflet.
