Museum Greeters welcome visitors to Iron Spike Model Train Museum and introduce them to our mission. You will either introduce them to their tour guide, accompany the visitor around the Welcome Center yourself, or explain the Museum's layout if the visitor would rather tour independently. You will receive instruction on the information we wish to highlight to our visitors as you escort them through the building to the actual Museum.

Museum Docents/Tour Guides accompany visitors through the Museum, answering their questions and pointing out display highlights. You may choose to specialize on one aspect of the Museum or develop a working knowledge of the Museum as a whole.

Greeters and Tour Guides are needed whenever the Museum is open. You can choose to work for an entire day or for just a few hours a day. We're flexible and appreciate any help we receive.
