Volunteering Opportunities at the Royal College of Music Museum
The Royal College of Music is one of Britain’s leading conservatoires. It provides specialised musical education and professional training at the highest international level for performers and composers. The Museum houses objects from all areas of the RCM Special Collections, including musical instruments, manuscripts, oil paintings and photographs and is closely linked with historical performance at the RCM. The Royal College of Music Museum was recently awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to re-develop its collections and activities.
In order for this to happen, the museum closed on 11 December 2015 and will re-open in 2019. During this time, the collections will be moved to an offsite storage space and will no longer be accessible to the public in the way they are now.
Over the course of the next few years, the museum will be carrying out extensive conservation on over 500 of our instruments, digitising a lot of our collection and making it available online. We will also be doing a number of outreach activities with schools and community groups, as well as curating temporary and pop-up exhibitions. You can find out more about the Royal College of Music Museum on our website.
