Volunteers at the Field House Museum are exposed to a variety of opportunities in the museum environment. Because we are a small museum, everybody does a little bit of everything. This means our volunteers will get to help staff with exhibit research, exhibit installations, office/secretarial duties, giving tours, gardening, and more. We would love to have you join our team!

Volunteers receive free admission and a discount in our gift shop.

Museum Background: The Field House Museum is the first historic house museum in St. Louis. Built in 1845, this home was originally one of twelve row houses on the block. This particular unit belonged to Roswell Field, an attorney on the Dred Scott case whose philosophical thinking propelled the case to the United States Supreme Court. The year Roswell moved in with his wife Frances they had a baby boy, Eugene Field. It was because of Eugene that the house was saved in the 1930s. Eugene became very well known as a newspaper columnist and children's poet. Eugene also collected toys during his lifetime, which eventually led to the museum collecting toys in his honor. Today we talk about Roswell's involvement in the Dred Scott case, Eugene Field's lifetime accomplishments, and our collection of toys.
