Our Museum is currently closed to the public to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
From the conservation of books to projects in historic parks and gardens, The Arts Society Heritage Volunteers are busy all over the UK helping to conserve and protect the nation’s heritage. They work in many different roles including book conservators, stewards and archivists in heritage sites.
As a charity, the Museum relies on volunteers. We are currently assisted by three TASS volunteers who are passionate about our heritage and who work closely with Museum Curator, Angela Gill, cataloguing and referencing photographs, documents and artefacts.

The Staffordshire Yeomanry (QORR) Old Comrades are hugely involved with the Museum. Not only do they help with enquiries regarding the history of the Regiment, they also provide practical support (e.g. assisting with dismantling and assembling displays, maintaining equipment, and attending open days).
They are a fountain of knowledge for all things regimental and their support is indispensable!
The OCA is a thriving group. Families, friends and former serving members are welcome to join their Facebook page. It is a private group so you will need to apply to join.
A poignant and evocative collection of photos from three personal WW2 albums belonging to Major T H Gardner will soon be available to view on the website. Watch this space!
