Getting Involved

Whether you are 16 and just starting out, looking to gain experience in heritage or looking to try something new – you may very well be able to help us.

Museums are a great way to engage with history and help families learn about their heritage and here at The Collection we like to make sure everyone that comes to visit has a great time.

Whether it is looking around one of our vibrant temporary exhibitions, trying to find their house on our aerial floor map of Lincolnshire or investigating Bronze Age gold, Iron Age longboats or Early Medieval Lincoln, there is always a chance to learn something new.

Interested in Heritage? Thought about volunteering? We have some fantastic opportunities for people to get involved in volunteering with Lincolnshire's heritage service, please click here for more details.

We currently have the following volunteer opportunities available at The Collection museum and Usher Gallery:

If you're interested in applying for one of these roles, please complete the application form and return it to The Collection via email: thecollection@lincolnshire.gov.uk or post The Collection, Danes Terrace, Lincoln, LN2 1LP.
