Capture the wonder and learning of our visiting public using your amazing photography skills!
The Photographer will visit the museum periodically during open hours to take compelling photos of visitors engaging with museum exhibits, programs, and each other. The resulting content may be used on websites, in marketing materials, and in annual reports to illustrate the museum’s impact on visitors and the community.
This opportunity is scheduled to run year-round. Work can take place according to the Photographer’s schedule, in consultation with the Volunteer Coordinator to ensure good coverage of days/events. The museum is open 10am - 4pm. Education programs in July and August occur on Wednesdays from 10am - 2pm. In September-November and February-May, they occur on the first Saturday of the month from 10am - 2pm.

The mission of the U.S. Naval Undersea Museum is to collect, preserve, and interpret naval undersea history, science, and operations for the benefit of the U.S. Navy and the people of the United States.
The U.S. Naval Undersea Museum is the official Navy museum that interprets all of the Navy’s undersea activities. We hold the country’s most comprehensive collection of U.S. Navy artifacts, documents, and reference material related to undersea subjects, and are renowned for several of these specialty collections, especially those in torpedoes, mines, diving and salvage, submarine technology, and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs). Several of these significant artifacts are on display in the museum’s 18,000 square feet exhibition hall, designed to connect visitors to the history of the underwater Navy.
The U.S. Naval Undersea Museum is one of ten museums operated by the U.S. Navy under the direction of the Naval History and Heritage Command.
