We are an all-volunteer organization! The Animal History Museum is the first museum dedicated to understanding and celebrating the human-animal bond. Its purpose is to serve and educate the public through the creation of a museum in Los Angeles County, California, for the collection, preservation and exploration of the history, culture, science and law relating to the relationship between human and non-human animals; by presenting exhibitions, lectures and other activities that are consistent with, and supportive of, the museum's educational goals and purpose.
Planned exhibits include: human-animal bond, animals & cognition, the history of animals in art, in literature, in TV & Film, and in pop culture, the development of animal welfare, rights & law, animals & religion and vegetarian/vegan food trends.
We also plan to have rotating exhibits, a lecture & film series, a small cafe and a gift shop. Someday we also hope to be able to host conferences, research, etc..
I have volunteered a few times for the Animal History Museum, and I've always enjoyed it. The people are great to work with, and the projects are interesting - it's fun to work on projects with kids and see them both enjoying themselves and learning at the same time. I highly recommend volunteering at the Museum.
I have been apart of the Animal History Museum since January of this year and it has been so fun coordinating with the other volunteers and Amy on projects for the kids in the local community. Definitely would recommend others to join me in volunteering for AHM!
