Each year the British Museum and the Marsh Charitable Trust recognise the contribution of volunteers across the United Kingdom through the Volunteers for Museum Learning Award.

The award celebrates the achievements and contribution of volunteers in museums, galleries and heritage sites all over the United Kingdom, recognising their dedication, innovation and excellence in engaging with the public on-site and online.

Winners of the 12 regional awards will each receive a £500 prize. An overall national winner will also be chosen and they'll receive an additional £2,000.

Applications for next year's award for volunteering undertaken during 2021 will open in spring 2022.
