Anne's story

Posted on by Anita O'Donovan

What’s your name? Anne Hallos 

What do you do at the museum? Visitor Experience & Under 5 story telling 

Tell us a bit more about what that involves? To welcome visitors, giving them more information & telling them about activities for the day or anything which may be happening in the future. Making sure resources in the museum are available. 

How long have you volunteered at the Museum for? Since January 2014 

What made you want to volunteer? I enjoy meeting other people & sometimes learning more about the museum through talking with them. I wanted to do something different to anything I have done before.

Tell us about your life before volunteering at the Museum? I was a bank employee. I have also done other voluntary work.

What do you enjoy most about your role? Meeting people of all ages & talking with them. 

Can you tell us an interesting fact or something surprising that you have discovered or learnt, whilst volunteering at the Museum? How versatile the museum can be at attracting visitors & is continually looking at this. Engaging with the very young to help them see museums can be interesting and fun.
