Volunteers Needed at The Durham Museum
The Durham Museum
Front Desk Volunteer
Be the first to welcome our guests to The Durham Museum. As a front desk attendant, you will collect admission, share the benefits of membership with visitors, and answer questions about museum layout and programming.
The Hitchcock Museum Shop is filled with items as unique as the museum itself. In our museum shop, you will help guests find the perfect piece of history to take home. You will also help our retail manager organize and display items in the shop.
The Museum's Photo Archives contain over 500,000 images related to the history of Omaha. As a volunteer in our photo archives, you will help maintain this rare and important collection, and assist guests with locating images for reproduction.
Education Volunteers, Docents and Train Car Host
Give visitors a personal experience they will appreciate and treasure! Join in on the fun by helping with classes, field trips and workshops. If history is your specialty, you'll enjoy an interactive role as a docent, where you will provide tour groups with detailed commentary on all that The Durham has to offer. Whether you've worked on the railroad, or simply enjoy its rich past, share your passion for travel from days gone by. Answer visitor questions about the museum's train cars, and offer a yarn or two of your own.
The museum's growing membership is due in no small part to our dedicated membership volunteers. Help our membership staff with mailings and thank-a-thons, as well as promoting and selling memberships both at the museum and off-site.
The Durham hosts several special events throughout the year, including membership previews, lectures, and our annual Christmas at Union Station celebration. From greeters and ushers to ticket takers and traffic control, there are countless opportunities to lend a hand.
Additional opportunities include greeting visitors at the museum, helping with mail projects and assisting in the curatorial department.
