Here at the Midwest Museum, we love to spread our knowledge about the wonders of the natural world and the fascinating aspects of animals. While we have many diverse creatures, both displayed and live, and areas that help teach everyone about the greatest parts of the Earth, we would love to have extra support to show that in the best way possible. For those who would love to teach, we have opportunities to help develop lesson plans and programs, lead tours around the museum, or assist whenever there are field trips! If you'd like to stay more behind the scenes, there's always room to research about our catalog of creatures, or to assist in archiving the ancient fossils that we have been graciously given. Lovers of reptiles would be delighted to learn that we house many different species, and could even understand how to take care of them. If you just love animals and would like to give a helping hand, we welcome you with any support and knowledge that you can bring to our special community! All you need is to be friendly and make guests feel comfortable at the museum.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
