Are you passionate about history, art or nature? Are you keen to give some of your time to support a cherished local charity?

The museum is looking to recruiting a new team of Volunteer Gallery Engagers to help bring our spaces and collections to life.

As a Volunteer Gallery Engager, you will provide our visitors with a warm welcome, help them get the most out of their visit and be part of keeping our spaces and collections safe and secure. The Tullie House galleries are large and spacious - volunteering with us is a fantastic way to make a difference to your community in a socially distanced environment.

As a charity, Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery continues to be a popular, ambitious and successful regional museum in Carlisle, with a forward-thinking manifesto and internationally important collections.  The museum has been an independent charitable Trust since 2011, it leads the Cumbria Museum Consortium (an Arts Council England funded National Portfolio Organisation) and has a range of impressive partners including the British Museum and the Universities of Cumbria and Lancaster.

Tullie House has a collection of over half a million objects, from internationally significant finds from Hadrian’s Wall to a major collection of pre-Raphaelite artwork. Our collections tell the unique story of Carlisle as a Border City, from Reivers to Railways and beyond. Our natural science collection has been Designated by Arts Council England, which makes it of national significance – it represents the amazing flora and fauna of Cumbria, the most biodiverse county in England.

The Museum has a wonderful programme of award-winning exhibitions and learning programmes that support the health and wellbeing of our community.
