Discover Volunteers are the warm and welcoming face of HMS Belfast helping visitors in the discovery and orientation of the ship. You will be able to make recommendations based on their personal interest and provide information to make sure that they get the very most out of their visit.

Discover Volunteers are confident using their initiative, intuition and are proud of being an IWM ambassador. As well as helping visitors explore our exhibits and activities Discover volunteers also welcome school groups and help to point out key facilities, address access needs and highlight our 'Hidden Gems’. As a Discover volunteer you will be there at the beginning of the visitor journey and will have the opportunity to make our visitors feel special and valued by informing, enthusing, and engaging in all that IWM has to offer. You will be able to make recommendations based on their personal interests and provide information to make sure that they get the very most out of their visit.

There is also the opportunity to develop/share skills and knowledge by leading activities that help visitors discover Communications at Sea (Morse Code, Semaphore etc).

If this sound like you please complete an application form and we will be in touch when we are ready to reopen.

Mission Statement

NO OTHER MUSEUM TELLS STORIES THAT MATTER MORE THAN THESE IWM is a global authority on conflict and its impact on people’s lives. We collect objects and stories that give an insight into people’s experiences of war, preserve them for future generations, and bring them to today’s audiences in the most powerful way possible. Our family of five museums uncover the causes, course and consequences of war, from the First World War through to present-day conflict.


On behalf of all the staff and volunteers we are delighted you are considering joining the team at IWM London Branches and we are excited to get you involved in our work and ambitions.

IWM is hugely proud to be a volunteer involving organisation that engages nearly 1000 volunteers across our five sites.

Our volunteers are very important to us. With your proactive support we can bring to life the stories of our collections and conflict, care for our many significant objects and enhance every customer experience and journey.
