If you would like to volunteer to Northwest museum to help in the following departments:


  • Working in the Museum

  • Helping in the Workshops

  • Workshop Tutor

  • Tour (Teaching visitors on the computers)

  • Arcade helper

  • Internet Cafe

  • Gift Shop

We would advise and encourage all volunteers to help in all areas of the museum. However, if you prefer to stay in one area, that is entirely up to you. This all about learning in many fields and something you can add onto your CV. We don't want any of our volunteers to use their own money, we will pay for all out of pocket expenses. There will be rewards and recognition for all our volunteers.


This year was hoping to open on 1st August, but unfortunately the Spinners Mills was closed temporarily due to fire regulations. The Mills had to find the funding to create a new fire exit and other fire regulations had to be setup within the Mills. So unfortunately, we have had to postpone our opening to a later date. The Mills now have the funds and contractors to begin the work and hopefully we should be back in, early next year to get our Museum/Workshop. So the new date of opening will be at Easter.
