We are always looking for new volunteers here at the MHS!
Our official training for new volunteers is in the spring of each year, but we are more than happy to do "on the spot" training for you whenever you want to start.
Some examples of ways you can be involved:
Greeter & Guide - You are the face of the museum! Greeters & guides welcome visitors to the museum and provide a brief orientation of the exhibits and history of Milton. May be asked to do other basic office tasks. Greeters are encouraged to sign up for 2-4 shifts per month.
Archives & Exhibit Assistant - Help inventory and catalog the museum's collections with the director. Archives assistant may also help with data entry on our database software. Exhibit volunteers assist with new exhibit preparation and installation depending on the volunteer's interest. Volunteers interested in these jobs will be trained by the director.
Walking Tour Guide - Are you able to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time? Then this might be the job for you! Volunteers interested would lead groups of anywhere from 10-20 people on various tour routes throughout town. Walking tour guides will be trained by the director.
Other positions that require little to no training - Cleaning & organizing, Special events greeter, landscaping & grounds, photographer and mailing/office assistant.
