The Folly Museum Visitor Welcome

Are you passionate about history and heritage?
Are you looking for a way to give back to the community?
The Folly in Settle needs YOU!

We are looking for friendly and outgoing volunteers to welcome visitors to our Museum, open up and close the gallery spaces, and sell items from our Artisans’ Gallery and Museum shop.

You will be joining an enthusiastic and knowledgeable team and can take advantage of opportunities to research our collections and contribute to future exhibitions.

Volunteers work either a morning or afternoon shift Tuesday-Sundays. While on-shift, you will be entitled to a free tea or coffee, and get a discount of 10% in our Folly Coffee House the rest of the time too. You can also take advantage of the Northern Museums Volunteer Pass Scheme, which grants free entry to dozens of other museums in northern England.
