How to get involved


Do you enjoy meeting new people and sharing the history of our wonderful area?  Volunteers are a hugely important part of the Museum team, bringing their own insights and helping us to forge links between the local community and the Museum.

Volunteers can get involved in all aspects of museum management from front-of-house to collections care.

If you would like to know more about volunteering opportunities please email or call us on (01303) 257946


There is no admission charge for Folkestone Museum and we aim to keep access free for all.  This means that the Museum can be accessible to people of all ages from all backgrounds.

However, caring for Folkestone’s heritage needs your support.  You can help us to keep the Museum free by donating cash in any of the three donation boxes in the Museum. We suggest a minimum donation of £2.00 per visit.
