Volunteer museum shop

The Maritime Museum Rotterdam is supported daily by a large team of volunteers. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers for our museum shop on weekends.

Wanted: Volunteer museum shop (weekend)

The Maritime Museum Rotterdam is located in the oldest and largest museum harbour in the Netherlands. Here, visitors experience on historic ships and cranes how Rotterdam's world port once began. The museum offers visitors a journey through our maritime past and present in contemporary exhibitions for big and small adventurers.
