Blitz Museum Guide - Weekends and School Holidays

Join one of the Cathedral's hidden gems!

Our Blitz Museum is one of the Cathedral’s hidden gems, and after a prolonged closure we are looking to reopen it. If you have a passion for history and enjoy chatting with people from all walks of life, this could be a role for you! We will be opening the museum to the public every weekend and during Coventry school holidays*, so if you could volunteer during these times we’d love to hear from you!

*We are looking at a rota system so don’t worry if you are interested but can’t commit to every weekend and/or holiday – we’d be happy to explore this with you.
