Federica Roberto:

Volunteering in the River & Rowing Museum has been an amazing experience for me. I’ve met lovely people and learnt new things. Organising the Peter Rabbit exhibition made me realise just how much work is behind every single decision the curatorial team has to make to deliver an excellent experience for the visitors. I’ve enjoyed my time volunteering and the team has been patient answering all the questions I had.  It has been a pleasure helping with the exhibition and I really enjoyed it. I will consider volunteering again for the museum for any upcoming projects.”
