Volunteer with us!



Volunteer with us! We are always seeking dynamic people who want to help the museum thrive. Please share your time and expertise to support this national treasure!

Museum Ambassador/Docents: Ensure a great visitor experience. Help visitors with wayfinding, and answer questions. Collect visitor feedback and take photos. Meet people from around the world!

Administrative Support: Prepare mass mailings, file, assist with inventory, and carry out other office tasks. This work is a huge help.

Events Support: Keep our many events running smoothly—setup and tear-down, decorating, serving food and drinks, giving talks, helping with kids’ events, and more. Or serve on a planning committee!

Facilities Upkeep: Help keep this large museum looking nice! Polish exhibit cases, vacuum, maintain the lawn and flowers, shovel snow, and more.

Behind the Scenes: Help us create a timeline of museum events, digital media scrapbooks, fun facts for social media, and more. Research newsletters, newspapers, and other sources.

Flexible Time Commitments

Whether it's a regular assignment, a "one and done" task, or an annual community service project, we've got an option for you.
