Museum Host

  • VO90574


Description

The Museum couldn't function without people to meet, greet and welcome our visitors. We aim to provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere in the museum, ensuring our visitors return again and again. Do you enjoy meeting new people and building community connections? Are you keen to share the exciting exhibits and provide local information to visitors? Perhaps this is the role for you? As a Museum host no two days are the same, but you can expect to carry out some of the following tasks: • Introduction to Museum • Meet, greet and host visitors in Museum • Welcoming group visits, guiding - when they can resume • Occasional attendance at outside events to promote Museum • Putting out signs and general housekeeping • Entry fees and tickets - cash handling and electronic payments • Covid compliance as appropriate

Organisation aims and objectives

Housed in the old animal auction mart in the centre of town, Alford Heritage Museum preserves and displays historic agricultural and social artefacts relating to life in NE Scotland and, in particular, the Donside area. We work with many schools, libraries, OAP and other local groups who visit or use the Museum for educational or social purposes. Music and cultural events are held from time to time. Artefacts may be borrowed for cultural and educational purposes. Normally open April - October.
