Volunteer - Museum of Economic Botany

Museums & Heritage Regular - more than 6 months Adelaide SA

About this opportunity

Our volunteers help care for the Museum’s valuable cultural collection and engage visitors with the stories these objects hold. They greet visitors, share the history of the Museum, and speak to them about the contemporary art exhibitions that are also hosted here. Many visitors are discovering the MEB for the first time and they are full of questions!

This volunteer role suits someone who is curious, passionate about botany, art and/or history, and is a good communicator.
