 Museum Supporters

Ilfracombe Museum is a community museum and one way to support its aims is for you to become a member which will financially assist the work of the museum. Membership runs from January – December and the fee of £7.50 is not discountable.

Membership entitles you to:

  • Free entry at all times.
  • Free access to the archives
  • Free e-newsletter
  • An open invitation to the AGM


As we are a registered charity, volunteers play a vital role, both front of house and behind the scenes. Numerous people currently give their time to keep the museum running. We love our volunteers!

You can meet new people and get a chance to develop new skills through volunteering with us. We pride ourselves on being a really friendly museum ‘family’.

Other volunteering opportunities.

Ilfracombe Museum is looking for new volunteers to add to our existing team. If you have a morning or an afternoon to spare once a week then we would love to hear from you. We offer full training for front of house duties which include using a till and welcoming visitors and a guarantee of a warm welcome for anyone who has an interest in local history and some more unusual artefacts from further afield!

We are especially looking for volunteers who can cover Saturdays so please pop in and talk to us if you feel you might be interested in helping out, or ring Sara on 01271 863541 for more information. Alternatively email if you are interested in finding out more.
