More than 40,000 people saw the Staffordshire Hoard in Birmingham
Volunteer are being sought to look after visitors when the UK's largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold arrives in Stoke-on-Trent.
The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery will exhibit more than 80 artefacts from the Staffordshire Hoard between 13 February and 7 March.
Museum chiefs said they needed about 150 people to help during the three weeks to look after visitors.
More than 40,000 people saw the hoard on show in Birmingham in September.
Earlier this week historian Dr David Starkey launched a campaign to keep the hoard in the West Midlands.
The appeal aims to raise £3.3m to buy the artefacts, which were discovered last July.
Up to 1,500 items were found in a field near Lichfield by metal detecting enthusiast Terry Herbert.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council said it would be displaying some artefacts which had not been on show in Birmingham.
Hazel Lyth, cabinet member for culture, said: "We are anticipating large numbers of visitors, in excess of the amount usual museum staffing levels are able to accommodate.
"It's a great opportunity to be a part of a historic exhibition and find out more about the hoard."
