Volunteering

There are always opportunities to volunteer at Ryedale Folk Museum. So if you have a few hours a week or a month and want to join our dedicated team, please get in touch.

We are currently seeking volunteers to help in the following areas:

1950s Village Store – welcoming visitors and providing interpretation in our characterful and nostalgic shop.  We can provide all the information you need relating to this exhibition space.  It’s a favourite with many visitors and we encourage them to leave us with memories of their local shop or use of the products on display.  We also sell a small range of traditional sweets – popular with the ‘big kids’ too!

Site Maintenance – helping keep our six acre site, gardens and twenty buildings in top-shape to be enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year.

If you’d like to get involved, please contact Craig Irving (Operations Manager) on 01751 417367 or email [email protected]
