There are several different volunteer positions available in the museum
Museum Floor Pop-Up Programmer - Interact with guests and present interactive items like animal furs, musical instruments or building blocks.
Museum Floor Program Instructor - Present a program on a regular schedule. We can provide the program or we can work with you to develop one that is all your own. This could be dance, science, imagination, storytelling - the sky’s the limit.
Museum Program Assistant - Aid the Program Instructor with all aspects of the program including set-up, delivery and clean-up. Must be available at the times of the programs.
Museum Detail Cleaner - Get into all the nooks and crannies of exhibits to assure that they are clean and sanitized.
Museum positions require a commitment of at least 1 hour per week for 3 months. There is a required training session before volunteering in the museum. This training session takes about 1 hour (some may be able to be completed from home).
Museum volunteer positions are open to anyone 14 years or older (dependent on the position). Under 18 requires permission from a guardian. For volunteers under 16, a guardian must also attend the training session. Community service certificates are available for all volunteer hours.
