The Australian National Maritime Museum has one of the biggest volunteer programs in Australia with almost 500 volunteers and up to 35 each day! Our Volunteers do a wide range of jobs from guiding the public on the vessels HMAS Vampire, HMB Endeavour replica and submarine HMAS Onslow to helping our conservation team with objects, being in the members lounge and maintaining our historic fleet.

The volunteer program at the museum offers training, the chance to meet like-minded people and help connect not only with local community but the world has we have many overseas visitors that come to the museum. The museum’s volunteers enjoy many benefits with eligibility which include discount at the Store and Yots café, volunteer outings and attendance at the annual volunteer party.

We couldn’t run the museum without their help and we are so lucky to have a group of amazing and dedicated volunteers. We are currently seeking volunteers and more information can be found here.
