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.

Discover Preston Changing Display Case

Discover Preston logo

Our Changing Display case within the Discover Preston gallery is an adaptable case located in the Discovery Room.

The displays will tell new stories about Preston and its cultures and communities using objects from both the museum collections and those collected by groups.

We aim to change the display four times per year – featuring two displays created by the Harris team and two displays created by our local community, living and working in Preston.
