We’re currently building a small team at the George Marshall Medical Museum to help the Curator look through our precious archives and book collection for references to the ‘Power of Plants’ for its planned programme of activities in 2020. This is a straight forward, but very interesting task, involving noting down when and how medicinal plants are mentioned, so that the Museum can digitize pages and use them to create talks, activities and resources for its visitors.
The medical museums are always looking for people to assist with open days and events. This usually involves supervising a 'station' of activities or crafts, with members of the public, or something specific like assisting with photography or giving tours.
We currently have opportunities to help at our annual spring clean of the George Marshall Medical Museum. Click here for more information.
Many of the museums' volunteers enjoy helping the curatorial staff with activities 'behind-the-scenes'. This could include helping to transcribe our collection of fascinating oral histories, assisting with collections documentation or researching objects for projects and exhibitions.
The George Marshall Medical Museum has an annual clean of its displays.
The medical museums have a full programme of schools workshops including formal tours of the museums and the former Worcester Royal Infirmary building along with workshops like Victorian Surgery, Skeletons & Muscles and Purge the Plague. Whether you would like to assist during a workshop, or help with ideas to create new ones, please get in touch.
