The Tramway Museum Society has been going from strength to strength creating and running the National Tramway Museum at Crich for more than 50 years, and the backbone has always been made up of volunteers (both TMS members and non-members) working hand in hand with museum staff. 

Volunteers help out with all aspects of museum life, from crewing the trams to tidying up the site during and after hectic special event days, talking to our visitors, restoring our trams, even helping in our archive of tramway documents and memorabilia.

For more information on volunteering for the museum, please take a look at the Crich Tramway Village website Volunteering page for more information.  Click on the image to visit the page.

The Society, on the other hand, relies solely on volunteers from within its membership to run itself as a Society and to support the management team at Crich Tramway Village, the home of the National Tramway Museum, which it owns. 

Areas where Members are needed to help include:

  • Organising & helping at member events

  • Writing articles for the Journal

  • Website content administration

  • Membership administration

  • Database support for Society records

Members can also help by getting involved in one of the varied committees that help to plan and manage the current and future operation of the museum and the Society. You could even put yourself forward to be elected as a Director of the Society.

If you would like more information about ways in which you can get involved in helping with the operation and/or support of the Society, please get in touch for a no-obligation chat with a member of our Membership team. Click on the the image to jump to the Contact Us page and send us a message.
