At the City of Norwich Aviation Museum; we are committed to recording and preserving Norfolk’s Rich Aviation Heritage.

The museum is reliant on the support of a dedicated team of volunteers, and without these people our continued existence would be impossible. As a growing organisation, we are always looking to welcome new, enthusiastic and hands on volunteers. There are several areas a volunteer can support us, and they aren’t always obvious!

Our volunteers come from all backgrounds and walks of life, and are always on hand to offer assistance or teach new skills. The museum provides a welcoming, open and inclusive atmosphere and as such will always aim to get new volunteers involved, whatever their knowledge or practical skills.

If you feel as though you can be part of our amazing Volunteer team, please take a look at our membership terms and membership form.

As a volunteer, you are registering to become a member of the City of Norwich Aviation Museum. If you are unable to commit to volunteering at the museum and visit regularly; we would recommend looking at our annual passes.
