BMM has a friendly and hardworking group of volunteers who manage the Museum, welcome our visitors, show schools and other groups around our collections. From our Museum staff and the Project Management team to our Board of Trustees, our volunteers play a vital role in helping us maintain our collections, obtain grant funding and saving the heritage of the City's medical history.
There are plenty of ways you can volunteer with BMM - no matter your age, background or experience. If you are interested in joining our volunteer team at BMM email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
A CHANCE TO MEET SOME OF OUR VOLUNTEERS WITHOUT WHOM THE PLACE WOULD FALL APART
Meet Alyson one of our team of museum volunteers working on the conservation side and find out what she does and why.
'I started volunteering at BMM last autumn. Working with the collection presents a wonderful opportunity to preserve and educate people about Bath's unique place in medical history.'
When the Museum was opened eighteen months ago, I volunteered to help because I care passionately about the Min's proud history. The beautiful Georgian city of Bath only exists today because of the many who came for treatment to the hot spring. The Min opened to patients in 1742 and since then has been helping people with connective tissue diseases of all kinds. There is a real need for a Museum in Bath to show the history of all medical treatments in the city, and at the BMM you can learn all about it. Come and visit!
As part of the BMM team I feel I am helping to try & make sure an intrinsic & valuable part of Bath’s heritage will not get forgotten! The museum has a rich archive of fascinating materials – some of which are not yet on display and it needs more supporters and volunteers to help make a success of this under recognised historical asset. I would encourage people to visit and see for themselves and join us!
I began at the museum as a Bath Spa University student on placement and I look forward to working on future projects as there is much history to be uncovered and displayed here at The Min!
I became a volunteer with BMM because I was fascinated by the history and heritage potential of 'the Min' - I was concerned to be involved in a project that set out to make the medical history of Bath engaging and accessible for everyone.
