Children’s Museum volunteers are dedicated to championing the wonder and joy of childhood. We have an amazing corps of volunteers at the Museum interacting with guests in our exhibits, helping out behind-the-scenes in our offices, preparing for special events and engaging with our community. Thank you to all who contribute their time and talents to our mission. 

The Museum is slowly reintroducing volunteer shifts on an as-needed basis. At this time, our only volunteer opportunities will be for events in the Fall of 2022. We sure have missed seeing our volunteers every day, and we hope to resume more regular volunteer opportunities in the months ahead.

Please note: Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination OR submission of a weekly negative COVID-19 test result are required to be accepted as a volunteer. Requests for reasonable accommodations will be considered.
