Museums are for everyone, and museums can change lives. Our volunteers enable us to tap into the rich skills and experience that our communities have to offer. Volunteers enable us to reach more people, increase accessibility to our collections and ensure that our museums remain relevant and welcoming to a wide range of audiences.

The Green Gym at Cultra, Ulster Folk Museum
The Green Gym at the Ulster Folk Museum is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and help restore our cottage gardens to produce the heritage fruit and vegetables that they would have 100 years ago.
In partnership with The Conservation Volunteers’ we host a “Green Gym” session at the Folk Museum every Friday. Check out our video below to see how the project is transforming our heritage gardens as well as the impact it has on those who volunteer.
