Join us and become part of history!

The Ainsley House Museum in downtown Campbell is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to serve as Docents and Greeters, ensuring the Ainsley House remains open for public tours.

As a Docent, you'll lead guided tours through the 1925 historic home of JC Ainsley, one of the Santa Clara Valley's pioneering fruit canners. Meanwhile, Greeters will welcome visitors inside the Carriage House and manage the Museum Gift Shop.

We operate Fridays through Sundays, 11 am to 3 pm, and offer flexible scheduling with just one shift per month required. Training is provided for all volunteers.

In addition to the satisfaction of preserving local history, volunteers enjoy perks such as discounts in the Museum gift shop, special event invitations, and even volunteer field trips to other museums, along with potluck socials.

Please contact Museum Supervisor Kerry Perkins at kerryp@campbellca.gov for more information.

Please note: Volunteers must be 18 years or older to participate.
