We need folks with an interest in the space program to act as Docents. If you can only serve a few hours, that's okay. We are open weekly between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday (closed Sundays). There are openings available at various points throughout the schedule. If you have worked in the space program, that's even better but it is not a must. You DO need an interest in, and some knowledge of, the American Space Program. We will train you and provide more info and a general script (but we encourage people to insert their own observations, anecdotes and information in order to make each tour unique.) MUST be comfortable speaking to strangers and engaging with the public!
We would prefer you volunteer weekly whenever possible, but will consider bi-weekly, monthly or even on a substitute basis. We have a relaxed, fun working environment and try very hard to support our volunteers.
Contact the Office Coordinator, Anita Truex at Anita@AmericanSpaceMuseum.org or 321-264-0434.
PLEASE DO NOTE REGARDING COVID-19: We HAVE re-opened and DO require safety protocols to be in place for everyone entering the building. Masks and temperature screenings are still required (for the safety of several of our staff/volunteers who have compromised immune systems) and cleanings of the museum are done multiple times daily. We understand that coming through a pandemic is a complicated, ever changing process and are monitoring the situation and recommendations and continue to adjust our policies accordingly.
About American Space Museum / Space Walk of Fame Foundation
308 PINE ST, TITUSVILLE, FL 32796, US
Our mission is two-fold, as our tagline indicates: "Preserving Achievement; Inspiring Innovation." First, we honor those who built the American space program by preserving their artifacts, history and individual stories. Second, we use those stories and artifacts as an educational springboard toward inspiring a new generation to innovate, invent, explore and discover.
We have a 6,000 sq ft facility in downtown Titusville, dedicated to honoring America's space pioneers and displaying their artifacts and achievements. We also offer STEAM Space, a dynamic education program that features monthly programming for kids, a variety of camps, activities and a Makerspace. We are also building a one-of-a-kind SALT program, focusing on Strategic thinking, Administration, Leadership and Teamwork.
Our museum is open 6 days a week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a suggested donation of $10 per adult, $8 for military and seniors, $5 for students 13-18 and FREE for students under 12. Our near-by Space Walk of Fame monuments are available for viewing year-round. We offer docents who worked in the space program and can tell the story of our space history from a personal perspective. We also offer a hands-on experience where visitors can interact with some (not all) of our artifacts...including a mission control console that was used during the Apollo and Shuttle programs, and a NASA program desk from 1964, which offers visitors the chance to dial an old rotary phone and type on a NASA typewriter from the era.
