Tamworth Powerstation Museum Volunteer

Tamworth Powerstation Museum celebrates Tamworth as the first city in Australia to have municipally funded electric street lighting and the expansion of electrically technology from there. Established in 1988, it is located on the site where the 1888 steam engines powered the street lighting system, and the 1907 Power Station / Municipal Electric Showroom building has been refurbished to display a range of unique exhibits: from street lights and industrial machinery, to kitchen appliances and hair dryers.

Volunteers have the opportunity to assist in several ways:

-          To assist with the day to day opening of the Museum for visitors including providing tours.

-          Catalogue and care for the collection including digitisation.

-          Installation of exhibitions.

-          Monthly working bees – aimed at ensuring the Museum is on best display to the public.

Training will be provided as part of commencement.


Tamworth Powerstation Museum is open Wednesday-Saturday 9am until 1pm.

If you love history, telling a great story or want to preserve our heritage for the future then this is a great Volunteer opportunity
