Volunteer on Saturday afternoons with Job Carr Cabin Museum.

We are seeking friendly faces to greet museum visitors and help them learn about Tacoma's pioneer history. You may also assist with children's activities and help tourists find their way around Tacoma.

No need to be a local history expert, we'll give you the tools to succeed! We welcome volunteers of all ages, interests and skill levels. Training and reference materials are provided. You will also have opportunities to assist with a variety of tasks, suited to your skills and interests, that help keep the museum running.

Saturday volunteers can sign up for a weekly or monthly commitment. The museum is open W-Sat afternoons and is the visitor center for Old Town, Tacoma. All volunteers must complete a volunteer application form and successfully pass a security background check.

We welcome volunteers of all ages, interests and skill levels.

  • Teens (15-17) may volunteer with permission from a parent/guardian.
  • Adolescents (10-14) may volunteer if a parent/guardian remains on-site at the Museum to supervise them directly.
