Grampian Transport Museum is a volunteer-led organisation which is supported by a small number of paid staff.

Much of the progress achieved over the past 30 years can be credited to the hard work and determination of volunteers, who are all appreciated and looked after.

Our volunteers are men and women of all ages and from all walks of life. Some are looking to pass on their knowledge and skills as they enter retirement, others are looking to develop new skills and add vital experience to their CV.  

There are always a wide variety of volunteering opportunities at the museum, some of which are listed below.  

Customer Care Assistants 

It is important for our visitors to feel welcomed and for them to get the most from their visit. We are particularly keen to recruit new people for weekend cover. Therefore, we believe that having our Customer Care Assistants on hand to explain, discuss and navigate our exhibits is key to providing an enjoyable and memorable visit.  

Event Marshals

This is your chance to get up close and in the mix at some of our most popular events.  Our Event Marshals provide amongst other things, security, crowd control and assistance at all our outdoor events.  We are always looking to add to our pool of marshals to ensure our events program continues to run smoothly.


Join our team of gardening enthusiasts who help maintain the plantings on the museum frontage and throughout the site.
