Work Experience

We offer work experience twice a year to Year 10 - 12 pupils. Work experience is a great way to develop skills and see what working in a museum is like.

During the week you will work with us to look after the collections and plan exhibitions and events. You will also spend time with the visitor services and learning teams.

2021's work experience placements:

Due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic, we are currently not advertising any work experience placements. We typically run two one-week work experience placements per year. Please return to this page for any further updates.
