Home has many meanings, from the buildings we live in to a feeling that goes beyond a specific place. The Museum of the Home’s purpose is to reveal and rethink the ways we live, in order to live better together. It is a place to explore and debate what home means.

We’re looking for volunteers to support the Family Programme during the Summer holidays. The programme offers creative activities for children connected to the museum’s new immersive experience for families ‘Pet Life’, which will run from July – October. Volunteers will support the delivery of family days which will have a range of fun and furry activities on offer for all the family led by a mix of exciting artists.
