There are many opportunities for you to be involved in our exciting work. Our volunteers provide assistance in a range of activities, including research and cataloguing, greeting visitors, clerical work, and staffing the Admissions Desk. A volunteer is expected to provide a regular commitment of time, ranging from one half day to several days per week. The Museum is open to the public six days a week, and volunteers are utilized at all times. Opportunities for volunteers are always changing depending upon the needs of the museum.
