An Exciting New Season Begins February Half Term

An exciting new year starts this February Half Term and we’re looking for skilled and enthusiastic volunteers!

An exciting new year starts this February Half Term at Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum and we’re looking for skilled and enthusiastic volunteers to keep driving our museum from success to success.

This year, discover the story of the people and the history of the industry which together shaped North Yorkshire and Teesside for generations to come in our authentic underground experience. Awarded the Certificate of Excellence for the second year running, our 1½ hour, fully guided tour immerses visitors in a day in the life of an Ironstone miner. We’ve also planned an exciting series of events and exhibitions lined up over the course of 2017, beginning this half term with some fabulous family crafts. Come and make crafty miner’s lanterns on Monday 13th from 11am till 1pm or bird feeders on Wednesday 15th from 11am till 1pm, donations welcome.

Looking for work experience or to give something back and meet new people in a friendly and busy environment (with plenty of cups of tea to go around)? We’re looking for skilled and enthusiastic volunteers to join the ranks of Tour Guides, Artefact Collections Team, Education Assistants and Maintenance Team.
