Our volunteers are essential to the Museum’s operations.
Volunteers assist in every department of the Museum and we regularly recruit volunteers for a wide variety of assignments, ranging from the Archives to Train Conductors. Most volunteers commit to one shift per week. While we encourage and prefer a weekly commitment, the minimum requirement to volunteer for most roles is one 6-hour shift per month for a year. Some positions may require a greater time commitment due to the training involved. If you’d like to know more, please email the Volunteer Manager. If you think you’re ready to apply, please see our current recruitment window and volunteer openings.
If you’re interested in volunteering but are unable to commit long-term, check out our Special Events Volunteering for one-time opportunities.
We are currently recruiting volunteers for our next orientation and training period. We are seeking applicants for Volunteer Docents, Volunteer Tour Guides, and Volunteer Train Conductors. Our next scheduled orientation will be on Tuesday, August 30.
