Work Experience

Two people setting up and photographing an exhibition

Mansfield Museum is committed to offering a wide range of work experience opportunities which give a real insight into a career within museums as well as providing opportunities to gain knowledge and skills. Our work experience placements offer young people the opportunity to spend time working across a variety of departments, to gain a broad insight into different types of careers in the arts and heritage sector.

Spend one or two weeks away from the classroom learning about a specific job or area of museum work. You could help re-box and photograph a collection, help plan an exhibition, work alongside our Education Officer to deliver educational workshops, or repair and conserve gallery displays.

If you are interested in a placement at the museum, please send us a letter of application, explaining your particular areas of interest, to or give us a call on 01623 463088.
