Volunteering at Rockwood Museum has great benefits!

  • A rare opportunity to work closely with museum objects and to lend a hand in setting up special ongoing exhibits in the museum.
  • Free admission to museum for volunteer and guest.
  • Educational sessions about interpreting the museum and other aspects of the collection and local history.
  • Volunteer discounts on items purchased in the museum gift shop.
  • Field trips provided quarterly to other museums for continuing education and socializing with other Rockwood Museum volunteers.
  • Yearly appreciation dinner for all museum volunteers.

Volunteer schedules are flexible. All guides serve a minimum of two 3-hour shifts per month...but typically guides fall in love with Rockwood and choose to serve more often!

There is also one volunteer meeting per month and occasional training sessions.

Sunday 12 noon - 4:30 PM.
