Discovery Place Science in uptown is looking for dedicated volunteers who can work one shift per week in our upcoming featured exhibition Genghis Khan:The Exhibition.
Vistors will explore the culture, conquests, and heritage of the world's greatest conqueror when the treasures and stories of Genghis Khan are presented in Charlotte for the first time.
Experience life in 13th-century Mongolia, entering the tents, battlegrounds and marketplaces of a vanished world. Explore Genghis Khan's life and those of his sons and grandsons during the formation, peak and decline of the Mongol Empire.
View gold jewelry and ornaments, silk robes, musical instruments, pottery, sophisticated weaponry and numerous other fascinating relics and elaborate artifacts. More than 200 objects will be on display - the largest collection ever assembled of the treasures of Genghis Khan, including artifacts from the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Volunteer shifts will be as follows:
Monday - Friday:
9:00am - 1:00pm 12:00pm - 4:00pm
9:00am - 1:00pm 1:00pm - 5:00pm
12:00pm - 5:00pm
Our biggest need is for the weekend shifts as we have a large group of Chinese Exchange Students coming in to volunteer on the weekend
Volunteers will receive a Discovery Place Volunteer Tee shirt and name badge along with FREE parking in the Discovery Place Parking Deck. Once a volunteer has reached 70 hours of service you will receive a FREE Family Membership to the museum. All volunteers also receive a 15% discount in the Museum Cafe and Gift Store.
Please contact Susan Dhona for more details and if you would like to help with this great exhibition. A volunteer orientation will be held on November 12th for all who sign up to help.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
