Wolverhampton Arts & Heritage Service are looking for volunteers to help get their geology collections onto this website but first it needs to be catalogued and for that we need the help of knowledgeable volunteers.

A great opportunity to handle a fascinating collection of mainly fosssils collected by Dr Fraser, a local collector, back in the 19th century, find out more about the museum sector and get work experience to write on your CV.

Dr Fraser

You will be trained to use our collections databaseĀ  to record information about the geology specimens and join a small but enthusiastic team working hard to get information about our museum and gallery collections online.

All we ask in return is that you commit to a minimum of one day a week for a minimum of six weeks.

The collection is located at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

More information and to download an application formĀ visit the Wolverhampton Arts and Museums website.
