About

Collections volunteers are vital to the care of the Veterans Memorial Hall and Museum's collection, helping to preserve our veterans’ histories. These activities can include photographing artifacts, writing detailed artifact reports and researching records. Are you skilled with fabric, we have a large collection of uniforms and cloth equipment. If you are more of a reader, we have archival and research work just waiting for a special volunteer to take an interest. If you love local history this is your opportunity to help honor those from Winnebago County that have served in the Armed Forces.

Get hands on with the history and artifacts here at Veterans Memorial Hall and Museum. An eye for detail and patience are great skills for this position. Training provided. Hours available vary, Memorial Hall is open Mon-Fri, 9am to 4 pm.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer at Veterans Memorial Hall and Museum!
