Join our crew of volunteers

Volunteers are the backbone of the museum, and we literally could not operate without them. We have opportunities in visitor services, education, and Friends of the Museum. Our volunteers help in many different areas, including at the information desk, in the gift shop, in our gardens, on exhibits, in the classroom, online and out in the community.
