Want to volunteer at a museum but not sure about a public facing role? Hectic schedule keeping you from volunteering? Want to volunteer with your kids? The Wornall Majors Historic Houses have a volunteer position made for you. We are looking for volunteers to help with preparations for our public events. From cutting string for children’s crafts to setting up chairs, every little bit helps. Many of these tasks can be completed on a flexible schedule or even done from home. Our biggest upcoming need is getting crafts ready to engage the minds of our summer day campers. If you are looking for a way to give back to the community, Wornall Majors can help you do that.

We are a non-profit that operates two of Kansas City’s most historic structures: the John Wornall House and the Alexander Majors House. These historic homes serve as the dynamic backdrop for events and community gatherings. We strive to tell an inclusive and accessible story about American mid-nineteenth-century history.

Position duties:

  • Vary depending on needs for upcoming events

Time commitment and schedule:

  • Flexible with a varying number of opportunities available each month
  • Both weekday and weekends available
  • Volunteers are asked to commit to at least two events per year

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Wornall/Majors House Museums is to engage the community by bringing history to life through hands-on, innovative programs and experiences.


Built in 1858, the John Wornall House Museum is a restored Greek Revival home furnished with period antiques. Built As the family home of John and Eliza Wornall, the house played a crucial role in the 1864 Battle of Westport. The Wornall House is a treasure from the days of early Kansas City, and is a valuable educational tool for all ages. On our tours, visitors from around the metro and across the country learn about the frontier experience, the Border Wars, and the American Civil War in an immersive environment.
We invite you to join us in sharing our story, preserving our structure, and raising our visibility in the community.
