The Royal College of Music Museum is the only music museum in the cultural district of South Kensington. Our volunteers ensure that we can share our musical treasures with students, schools and public visitors.
Different opportunities will arise at different times. If you would like to volunteer with us, please check this page regularly for details of the latest posts being offered.

The Gallery/Visitors Assistant volunteer will be the first point of contact with visitors, providing assistance and enhancing their visiting experience. You will lead guided tours, share your knowledge and facilitate various museum events.
