How to Become a Volunteer







Volunteer Positions

Volunteer Banner


We are currently recruiting Cart Guides to assist with our Hands On History School Program for the 2017-2018 school year. This is a 5 to 10 month commitment, and we ask that you volunteer for at least 3 shifts a month (6 hours). Fall training is scheduled for August 15-17, 2017.


Volunteers assist by staffing the front desk, greeting visitors, responding to visitor inquiries, and answering the phone.


Volunteers assist in the museum store with point of sales, inventory, pricing, cleaning, helping guests, and merchandising. Store volunteers must commit to a weekly 3.5 hour shift.


Collection positions are very limited. Volunteers for this work must have a serious interest in the subject matter, and have a regular time commitment. Previous education in the subject is not required; however, the supervising archivist and research coordinator are willing to train the interested volunteer in doing the specialized research work.  Any opportunities will be posted online.


Program volunteers assist with a variety of hands-on activities for visiting families.


The application window for the 2018 Junior Docent Program opens April 6. Learn more about the Junior Docent program here.
