Mission Statement

The Museum Ambassador program at the National Museum of American History complements the Docent and Information Desk programs as they both orient and welcome arriving visitors and groups to the museum. Ambassadors circulate throughout the Museum's public zones to answer basic questions, direct visitors to programs and exhibitions of interest, assist with crowd control and line management, and implement brief visitor surveys.


More than ever before, the National Museum of American History today shines new light on American history. The museum works to ensure that our collections, exhibitions, research, publications and educational programs all support the Museum’s basic mission--to inspire a broader understanding of our nation and its many peoples--and to make our exhibitions and programs as accessible as possible to all visitors.

I've been volunteering as a Wonderplace and Spark!Lab Ambassador with the National Museum of American History for 5 years. I received both a 2 year and 5 year pin for good service.
