Harris visitors

Do you love museums and galleries and enjoy talking to people? We are looking for adult volunteers aged 16+ with a couple of hours to spare each week or month to chat to our visitors to find out more about them.

We value our visitor opinions and carry out surveys to help us learn how we can give them the best possible experience.
