Volunteers. Those brilliant people that give up their time to help and provide services wherever it’s needed. Sometimes they fill the gap where there was once a paid position; sometimes it’s a service that has never been associated with the institution until the volunteer offered.
Either way, it’s always a Win Win for both the volunteer and the museum.
A few years ago, Volunteer Coordinator position was not even thought of. The handful of volunteers that did come forward were usually mature people with recently acquired spare time on their hands (read that as retired).Tags: Attingham Park, Best practice, museums, Volunteer

Our tour and interview with the curator, which you can see here, allowed us to get behind the thought process that went behind this unique exhibition.
