Volunteers are the backbone of the museum. We'd love your help in the following areas:

Interacting with Children: Show the children how to properly and safely use exhibits. Suggest area and activities the children might enjoy trying.

Supervising and Maintaining Exhibits: This means you will walk around from exhibit to exhibit, restocking supplies and making sure the museum is clean and safe.

Preparing Materials and Supplies for Special Events: You might be asked to cut things out, assemble parts, blow up balloons or any number of other fun jobs to help us prepare for special events like birthday parties, field trips, workshops, etc.

Serving on a Committee: If you enjoy planning fundraising events and programs or have experience in the areas of marketing, non-profit governance or construction/exhibit design, consider joining one of our committees.

Internships: Want to gain real-world experience while making a different at the museum? Internships offer hands-on opportunities to boost your resume and improve your skills.
