Volunteer Information

Musselburgh Museum and Heritage Group (MMHG) is a small independent charity consisting entirely of volunteers.  Some people serve on the Management Committee as trustees.  Individual trustees also take responsibility for different aspects of the Group’s work depending on their skills and experience. The Group manages the Musselburgh Museum on behalf of East Lothian Council.

We have a team of volunteers who act as Stewards in the Museum.  Others deal with the accessioning and storing of photographs, documents and articles.  The East Lothian Council Museums Service provide advice and guidance on best practice in this aspect of the Group’s work.

We are always looking for volunteers to join our team.  If you would like to know more, please email us on
