A legacy – a gift in your will, can help us to continue to make a difference to people’s lives through all the work that we do at Fleetwood Museum.

To talk about a donation, possible business sponsorship or a legacy, please contact our Museum Manager at info@fleetwoodmuseum.co.uk or 01253 876 621

Fleetwood Museum staff and volunteers after the Final Homecoming Parade.


Fleetwood Museum is staffed largely by volunteers.  The people you see at reception, in the coffee house, on the galleries, leading our talks and craft sessions, are mostly local people giving up their time for free.

Without volunteers our museum could not open its doors – we are very proud of them.  You could be one!

We are always looking for new volunteers to contribute a few hours a week to help keep our museum open.  You could work in the café or on the galleries, or be involved in other areas of the museum.  If you have skills in a particular area (I.T. or catering, marketing etc) and you think you could help us:

Contact us at info@fleetwoodmuseum.co.uk or 01253 876 621 to discuss becoming a volunteer.

Volunteer benefits include a discount in the museum shop and coffee house, and an annual programme of social events including a BBQ.
