The management and the day to day operations of the museum rely on volunteers. The various volunteer activities include fronting the reception desk to assist visitors with information about the museum and the Island, and assist with shop purchases.
A large part of the installation and maintenance of displays, fixtures and garden is also carried out by volunteers. Each week free video documentaries are screened for visitors by a volunteer.
In this way the Museum is able to open its doors with no entry fee, so that tourists and residents can come and enjoy the facilities and learn about the Island as many times as they wish.
