Looking for volunteers interested in working a few hours/days a week in the museum gift shop and reception area. You will not only be working with visitors assisting with their purchases, but also as an ambassador for the organization, as you will be the first person they meet when entering the museum or calling on the phone. We have lots of educational programs and entertain guest from around the globe not to mention our astronomy night, with our special events and educational workshop days to keep things interesting. Basic computer skills peppered with loads of people skills not to mention a big smile are the requirements for this volunteer position. So if you love people and have an interest in history (especially space history!) and think you might enjoy working in a gift shop / reception environment then this is definitely the place for you. We are open Monday thru Saturday 10 to 5 and we would be thrilled to add you to our schedule. Contact the Office Coordinator Angie Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org PLEASE DO NOTE REGARDING COVID-19: Our tentative re-opening date is June 1st, and we WILL require safety protocols to be in place for everyone entering the building, including guests.
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 almost-weekly programming for grades 3-12, a variety of camps of activities and a Makerspace, which will be opened by the end of 2016. 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.
