Interested in becoming a Volunteer?

At the MUSEUM, there’s a role for everyone

Volunteering doesn’t have to be a slog – we’ve got a wide range of projects and activities at Crail Museum and Heritage Centre that are suited to all ages and skills.​

In Crail, we are so lucky to be surrounded by history and legend and as a small charity, we are justly proud of our Museum and understand the need to preserve and enhance it for future generations.  Every volunteer brings a new skill set to the Museum, which can be put to good use and there are lots of opportunities for development, including merchandising, museum archive documentation, preparation of new exhibitions, guiding local walks etc.​

Our Museum is run entirely on our volunteers’ enthusiasm and dedication.  Without our volunteers, the Museum would not exist.

So, if you’ve just moved into the area, are recently retired, between jobs, or just want to give something back to your local community, then we’d love to hear from you. 

If you are interested in becoming a Museum Volunteer please contact our Volunteer Coordinator - Peigi Muir on 01333 450914 or email: volunteers@crailmuseum.uk

Crail Museum Volunteers have access to a number of Private Internet Pages to help with volunteering at the Museum.

Crail Museum has a lot of photographs in a database called “Modes” which is available on the Museum computer.

Volunteers are gradually adding thousands of other non-photographic records too.

It's quite easy to search for things in Modes and once we have the records typed up it will be the place to look if we want to find anything in the Museum archives.

If Volunteers want to learn how to look for things in Modes then we have lots of documentation on the Museum's Private Internet Pages.

Here are some examples of things that are already in Modes:

1909 car

5000 torpedo

Tolbooth Wynd burn
