If you would like to volunteer, please complete the online application. You will be required to complete a training session before volunteering at the museum. Orientation and training sessions will take place once area schools begin their summer break. Beginning in mid-May, watch our website for updates on specific training session dates and times. At that time, we will be accepting and reviewing applications.
