Work Experience and Volunteering Volunteers Our volunteers play such an important role at the Museum as they help us to extend our reach into the community. The valuable skill set that our volunteers bring enhances our programs, events, and operations. The key differences between volunteering and work experience: Learning and skills development may be incidental, rather than the primary objective of the placement. Volunteers are covered under the WA Museum’s insurance policy. Volunteering may be for a fixed period, project related work or an ongoing period of time. More about volunteering Work Experience The Western Australian Museum is unable to facilitate work experience or internship opportunities at this time.
