Volunteering opportunities

We welcome new volunteers from all walks of life, whether you have an interest in the history of Childhood, our world class Collection or the Museum itself, we’d love to hear from you. Volunteers have been valuable in their support of the Museum, which has experienced a rapid increase in visitor numbers, and so we work to compensate them for their time. Upon becoming a volunteer you will receive a V&A Volunteer pass, allowing you free admission to exhibitions at the V&A South Kensington, a discount in our V&A shops and cafes, and a number of other benefits.

To see our current volunteers:

We are currently recruiting Volunteers for our next exhibition Century of the Child: Nordic Design for children 1900 to Today.

If you would like to be considered, please e-mail with your name, contact details, and a brief resume of your experience: Email

We will then contact you when we commence our recruitment.
