About

King Manor Museum is looking for volunteers to give tours to its visitors! As a tour guide, you will conduct half-hour tours for drop-in visitors and provide information on the museum's period furnishings and on the legacy of the King family.

King Manor is the historic home of Rufus King, an author and signer of the Constitution who went on to become New York's first Senator, a presidential candidate in 1816, and an outspoken opponent of slavery. After Rufus's death, his son John King lived in the family home while undertaking his political career as a Governor of New York and an abolitionist.

We are specicially looking for volunteers who are available noon-2pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, and/or Wednesdays. Training will be provided. This is a great opportunity for students in museum studies programs or anyone who is interested in learning about the museum field or gaining public speaking skills.
