Become a Volunteer

Be a part of TNMoC! Contact us to become a volunteer -- volunteering@tnmoc.org.

Our volunteer community comes from far and wide. They bring their talent, ideas and enthusiasm to a vibrant community. You can be part of that. The museum is growing. We have new challenges and new opportunities to offer:

New Displays
Do you have a flair for presentation and design? Or maybe you have passion for a subject and you think you can tell a story from computing past or present. How about helping us talk about supercomputing, analogue and pre-computing devices, or new technologies?

Collection Coordination
Do you have a passion for a particular area of computing? Perhaps you really want to work with Data General computers, or you fancy Orics. To handle our large collection we assign coordinators to different sub-collections. We need people with your passion and knowledge to help catalogue conserve, maintain, handle, store and display objects.

Restorations
TNMOC is special. We preserve the experience of computing as much as artefacts. Every day we have people working on restoration and maintenance projects. If you're an electronics wiz or just eager to learn, we have projects needing your help.

Stewards
We love visitors! They come from all over the world and they could use your help to find their way around our museum. You can be the one answering their questions, offering directions and helping keep our visitors safe. All you have to bring is your friendly, helpful self, and a willingness to learn about our displays.

Guides
TNMOC provides regular tours to groups of all kinds. If you want a chance to bring the story of computing to the public, there's no more direct way than taking visitor groups. You'll need to be able to tell a ripping yarn, operate whizzy bits of kit, and engage with your audience. If you can make a regular, scheduled commitment, please get in touch!

Fundraising
Like all charities, TNMOC needs to make its case for public support. You could help us ensure the museum's future. We need people who can speak for us, write for us and help keep in contact with our supporters. Whether you're ready to stuff envelopes, or have a Rolodex full of potential donors, we'd love to talk to you.

Researchers
Do you enjoy research, still reading books made of real trees? Perhaps you would like to help us out in the library and research room. We have a variety of roles that you could work on from simple librarianship to providing research services. Come get lost in TNMOC's L-Space!

Archivists
The museum has extensive archives, but we need your help making them more accessible for the public. Archivists are cataloguing, scanning, storing and handling material including correspondence, manuals, papers and storage media. We are building what will be a world class capability for researchers everywhere. This is a unique chance to handle and care for primary source material about the computing revolution.

If any of these opportunities sound intriguing to you, please get in contact. We'd love to talk to you. Send us an email -- volunteering@tnmoc.org.
