Become a Volunteer

We Need YOU!

uncle-sam-wants-you.jpgThere is more than one way to donate.  Want to get involved?  Donate your time and talent by becoming a volunteer.  Volunteers are vital to the museum’s operation. Not only do volunteers widen the museum’s network of friends and supporters, they supply indispensable peoplepower and expertise.  

We’ll try to match our needs with your abilities, interests, and availability. 

You might help out with special events, guide tour groups, monitor exhibit rooms during busy times, or simply greet and make visitors feel welcome. Perhaps you can provide administrative assistance such as data entry or (based on your expertise) assist with collections management or exhibit construction.

As a volunteer, you can work as little or as much as you want.  "We would love to have someone volunteer one day a week," says Jeff Thielen, former executive director, "but we will accommodate individual schedules."

See our Volunteer Handbook to learn more about the museum and about volunteer opportunities.  If interested, you will need to submit an application and agree to a background check using our informed consent form.  For more information, contact us at or call 320-616-6050.   Also see our list of dedicated volunteers

Thanks to all our volunteers—past, present, and future.  WE SALUTE YOU!
