Volunteer Opportunities

We have many fine volunteers, but in order to expand and serve the Museum community [audience] like we envision, we need additional staff to be open more days of the week. Our current volunteers come Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 till 4:00. Opportunities include: answering the phone, answering questions, setting up tour dates, conducting tours, picture framing and matting, restoration of many different kinds of items, sorting, cataloging, arranging displays, selling items at our Company Store, and others. Mostly, this is a chance to be around other people like you - and being involved with one of the finest industrial museums in the country. Send your response to:
