Gallery - Front of House

The ideal front of house volunteer is someone who can open up the museum and be at Reception to greet visitors as and when they arrive. 

Visitor numbers can vary between a mob of people waiting for the next ferry to a lone Australian enthusiast from Perth…

Ideally, we’re also looking for someone who can undertake general long-term tasks in Reception at quiet times – on the computer, cataloguing, researching, or whatever your interests and skills are! 

And of course it helps to have some sort of sailing interest or background, but this is certainly not a requirement – plenty of opportunity to learn on the job!


Computer, cataloguing, researching, but certainly not required!
