As a Costumed Interpreter, the candidate will portray several real people who lived in and near the Museum’s historic buildings at 8 Chisholm Trail as part of the Museum’s Living History programming.
Costumed volunteers may assist in a wide variety of activities such as gardening and grounds keeping, cooking, and daily household tasks (candle making, housekeeping, sewing, etc.) in order to engage visitors. Other opportunities could include giving educational programs in period costume (see Education Volunteers - Trunk Presentations).
Volunteers should be comfortable with public speaking or acting, passionate about education, and have an interest in history. Living History volunteers are provided period clothing and training, with the option of shadowing other volunteers. Volunteers will be trained in first person interpretation.
