Our seasonal museum, open May through October, is looking for volunteer greeters. Hours of operation are Thursday through Sunday, 11 am to 4 pm. Volunteer greeters work alongside museum tour guides. The role of greeters are to welcome museum visitors, provide basic context about the museum, and engage in friendly conversation if the tour guides are currently occupied giving a tour. While there are no guests waiting, greeters can read or use wi-fi enabled devices.

The museum is open on a given day from 11 am to 4 pm, but volunteer greeters do not need to be present for the entire day. It is common for greeters to be at the museum for two hours of the shift, perhaps 12 to 2 or 1 to 3.

It's an easy and fun volunteer opportunity. If you are friendly, easygoing, and like museums, you'd be a great fit! No special skills needed!
