Volunteering at the Cole Museum


Students and people from the local community volunteer in the museum on Wednesday afternoons during term time (2-5pm). They help to conserve and clean specimens, take photographs, provide tours, organise events, or help with cataloguing.

If you are a School of Biological Sciences student interested in volunteering, please contact the curator Dr Amanda Callaghan (a.callaghan@reading.ac.uk). Volunteering in the Cole Museum can be officially recorded on your RED Award.

For anyone outside of Biological Sciences, please do just contact us on colemuseum@reading.ac.uk for information.

We offer unpaid internships at the museum for a minimum of 6 weeks.
