As a non-profit, The Children’s Museum depends on volunteers! We are always in need of volunteer help, so don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more!

Here are some suggestions for volunteer work you can do with us!

  • Office/Gift Shop assistance
    • Help us with office tasks, stuffing envelopes, answering phones, and working at the front desk helping people check in and purchase items from our gift shop!
  • Act as a guide or docent during group trips at the museum
  • Promotion & Fundraising

    • Work with children by teaching or assisting with a program. You can also write a teacher’s guide.
    • If you have a special talent or interest that you would like to share (be it art, music, science, or just about any other talent), you can do a regular presentation for groups or a single Saturday general program.
