The Pier Museum is a registered charity and is run entirely by volunteers and unpaid professionals who enable us to keep this important part of our heritage alive.

Southend Pier Museum desperately needs volunteer help in order to ensure the museum stays open to the public.

There is so much to do to keep the museum open to the public. If you could spare just a few hours each week mainly in the summer months, we would love to hear from you.
