Education and Living History Volunteers: demonstrate crafts and skills and share stories from local history in historic costume at Centennial Village and other museum sites. Projects include presenting historic material to local students, giving tours of museum sites, and teaching and assisting with summer camps.
Exhibits Volunteers: responsible for creating, designing and building history museum exhibitions. Potential projects include constructing, painting and mounting exhibit furnishings, sculpting mannequins, and researching, writing, and printing exhibit panels and labels.
Junior Volunteers: are welcome to help with most of the above Volunteer job opportunities. The museums’ staff does their best to accommodate schedules of both home schooled and traditional school students and consider it one of our major missions to mentor young history enthusiasts.
Special Events Volunteers: help with large museum events throughout the year. In addition to the Living History demonstrations at these events, volunteers are often needed to help with set up, clean-up, and hospitality.
