Let our volunteers show you around
The Museum always gets great feedback about our volunteers. They are passionate about Tamworth’s electrical history and many were even involved in setting up the museum in 1988.
Visitors to the museum enjoy being taken around by our volunteer guides and for those of you who can’t make it to the museum the following videos give you a quick glimpse of just how knowledgable and engaging they are!
