Get Involved

Volunteering is a great way to get involved with your community and make a difference. It also provides valuable support to things that matter. There are many different positions and areas in need of assistance at the Grimsby Museum and we work with volunteers to ensure they are enjoying what they are working on. No previous work experience required. All necessary training is provided. Learn something new or utilize your current skill set. Youth, adult and senior volunteers are all welcome and valued.
