Our volunteers play an essential part in the Museum’s operation. The majority of volunteers work as guides. They are very often the public face of the Museum of Australian Democracy, bringing to life the events that took place in this building and shaped the nation.
Some volunteers assist us behind the scenes by providing valuable research, administrative and political history expertise.
We provide our volunteers with ongoing professional development, opportunities to share skills and expertise and participate in a range of social activities.
