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!

Victorian White Cottage – welcoming visitors and providing interpretation in the White Cottage. You’ll be cooking and baking on the range, the warmest place at the museum! We can provide some historic recipes for you to try, or you can bring your own. 


If you’d like to get involved, please either:

Complete this simple online form  and we will get in touch with you.
