The museum and art gallery is supported by a team of hard-working and enthusiastic volunteers who help with collections, exhibitions, events and activities. We pride ourselves on being a welcoming and supportive place to volunteer, and we value the contribution our volunteers make.

Nationally renowned collections

The Swindon Collection is one of the most distinguished regional collections of modern British art in the UK. The collection deserves to be widely known and recognised, and to be used imaginatively to stimulate the enjoyment of art in a new generation.
