Get Involved!  Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are a vital part of our operations, so thank you for your interest! All of our programs, workshops and events are supported by a team of incredibly talented and generous volunteers.

We regularly need volunteers for a variety of events on both weekdays and weekends.
Volunteer duties can include:

Greeting visitors
Checking in guests
Setting up chairs & tables
Serving beverages
Gallery watch
Answering questions
Assisting instructors & participants(children & adults)
General clean up
And more!

Occasionally we need volunteers for administrative tasks or special projects in the office too. If you have a special skill or service you’d like to offer, please let us know. You might even windup helping prepare a space for a new exhibit!

Also, those with good attention to detail are welcome to volunteer to work cataloging the collection. Collection Volunteers should be able to commit at least 40 hours a year as this work does take some personal training from the Museum’s staff and repetition enhances learning the process. The work includes writing precise details about artifacts into a database, researching objects, and possibly photographing or scanning of objects. A good set of computer skills and an inquisitive mind are a must.

If you’re a student looking to meet your volunteer hours requirement, let us know!  We’ll be sure to help you gain important job skills while fulfilling your requirement – and we’re always happy to provide you future references.

We’d love to hear from you! Join our volunteer roster today by emailing us.
