The Museum couldn't exist without the help of its dedicated volunteers. In addition to helping the Museum, volunteers enjoy working with visitors and staff, the opportunities for life-long learning; and the satisfaction of knowing they are making a valuable contribution. Volunteers help out in myriad roles including serving as docents, teaching educational programs, helping in the office, processing and cataloging the collections, and serving on advisory boards and committees. No matter what you are interested in, IMNH can put you to work!
