An Information Desk Volunteer helps visitors connect to the past!

Information Desk volunteers meet, greet, and orient visitors to the Wisconsin Historical Museum.

Volunteers also provide information about the Wisconsin Historical Society's other divisions and its headquarters building, which is located on the opposite end of State Street. While staffing the Information Desk, volunteers have the opportunity to meet tourists from around the world who visit the Museum to learn more about our state's history and culture.

Mission Statement

The Wisconsin Historical Museum is part of the Wisconsin Historical Society, whose mission is to help people connect to the past by collecting, preserving, and sharing Wisconsin stories.


Travel back through time at the Wisconsin Historical Museum, exploring Wisconsin’s history from prehistoric times to the present day. In "People of the Woodlands", enter an Aztalan-style house, hear stories of native people living in Wisconsin, and unearth the work of archaeologists. In "On Common Ground" learn about themes unique to Wisconsin from settlement days through the present. Discover a frontier lead mine, track immigration routes through the state, explore work and play in a lumber camp, climb inside a Case IH tractor, and examine Wisconsin’s political heritage. Tour guides and staff present public programs for all ages, including approximately 30,000 schoolchildren each year. Changing exhibits, programs for all ages, and a unique museum store complement the exhibits.


We'll work with your schedule.
