Detailed description

Let the Railway Museum come to life

The nicest museum in the Netherlands is looking for volunteers who can make our collection shine. If you are interested in rail, you have two right hands and you think it is important that visitors get a top experience, please contact us.

The Railway Museum is proud of its volunteers. We are very grateful that we have a long tradition of people willing to help us. Places have now become available in our team: we are looking for volunteers, among others, who want to immerse themselves in our technology collection. This includes, for example, our signal box with classic mechanical installation and our turntable. Experience is certainly not a requirement, but enthusiasm and the will to learn are.

What will you do: demonstrate, maintain, clean, repair.


  • People who want to demonstrate our collection. For example, you learn what a signalman used to do and you show this to our visitors.
  • People who want to maintain our collection. For example, you ensure that a switch remains operational, or that the turntable looks tip-top.


  • The place to let your rail love grow and bloom
  • A nice workplace with nice colleagues
  • Opportunities to learn new things
  • Good guidance with room for your own ideas
  • An expense allowance and special activities for volunteers.


  • That you are regularly available
  • That you handle the collection responsibly
  • That you are hospitable to visitors
  • That you can collaborate with your colleagues

For further information, please contact Tuur Verdonck, curator of Technology and Railway Innovation, via the pink button.
