Job Description:

Oundle Museum has been in existence since opening in 1994 with an exhibition of ‘living heritage’ in the Drill Hall. The Museum moved to its present place in The Courthouse in 2000 where we are fortunate enough to have a space for a permanent exhibition about the history of the town and also a separate room for a specific theme. We have nearly 12,000 entries on our database of items in our collection, from a prehistoric flint to a 1970’s army dress uniform and knitted items from the jubilee, all collected from Oundle and also surrounding villages.

The Museum is run by a dedicated Management Committee and we are looking to expand our number, so if you are interested in local history and would like to help support the Museum there are several ways to get involved whether you live in Oundle or in any of the surrounding villages.

*We are looking for volunteers to join our committee and help publicise the Museum within the town and on social media.
*We are also looking for volunteers to assist with displays and exhibitions.
*You could also become a steward where you would work with a colleague when the Museum is open to meet, greet and assist visitors. Stewards can volunteer at the Museum as much or as little as they like. Our opening times are split into 3 hour sessions over a weekend and during the school summer holidays so if you have some spare time at the weekend please get in touch.
*You could become a ‘Friend’ of the museum by making a small or large donation on an annual basis to help support the running of the Museum. You will be invited to special events and the opening evening.
