Fire Museum of Maryland1301 York Road-rear buildingLutherville, MD 21093

Kids came dressed in their Halloween costumes and got to interact with people from the past who talked about fire fighting long ago.


The Fire Museum of Maryland is looking for someone who will help prepare the Museum's Archives & Research Center for a major building project that will start in late 2017-2018. This space is on the mezzanine of the Museum building and we will be installing a sprinkler system, compact storage, new lighting and HVAC on that level.

The volunteer would be using PastPerfect5, a museum software program for collections and membership and will be working directly with the Registrar/Research Director and the Collections Assistant to put together a work plan for packing and storing items in preparation for construction and then for installation in new storage spaces.

The successful volunteer will be someone who is comfortable working with computers, can take photographs of objects, pays good attention to details, and is comfortable lifting objects.It is helpful if the volunteer has had experience working with museums and/or archives and has a background in museum work, libraries or archives.

The volunteer will work with Microsoft Office, and will be taught to use Museum's database, PastPerfect. He/She must be able to work on own and with both staff and other volunteers.
