Become a Volunteer

Share in the excitement of welcoming and educating visitors to the museum. Volunteering at the museum is an opportunity to learn, share and experience the history, culture and art of the museum. Much of our strength lies in the dedication of our volunteers.

Volunteer positions include:

Greeters: Greeters welcome and orient visitors, answer questions about exhibits, events and facility amenities, check hand stamps of visitors entering the Fiery Trial exhibit. Greeters are asked to volunteer during a 2-3 hour shift at least two days a month.

Group Programs: Lead programs for school groups or adult groups that visit the museum. Programs are tied-in with school curricula and standards. Group Program Facilitators are given extensive training before leading groups on their own.

Public Programs: Assist with weekend events, exhibit openings, and other programs offered by the museums. Guide children through craft and game activities or provide hospitality services at events.

Resource Center: Answer visitors’ questions about the Civil War Museum’s Resource Center. Direct patrons to various reference materials.

Additional volunteer opportunities are available at the Kenosha Public Museum and the Dinosaur Discovery Museum.
