VOLUNTEERING - It is an excellent way of giving a little back to your community.  Whatever your age, interest, or ability, we have a job for you that you’ll enjoy doing.  Sign up with a friend or on your own.  Meet new people and enjoy working in a fun and educational environment. Our volunteers, with ages ranging from 11 to 91, have logged over 51,000 hours since the opening of the Museum. Some have been volunteering for over 10 years!  Join our happy team!
