Volunteer Opportunities

If you are enthusiastic about history, science and interacting with people of all ages then you belong in the GRPM (as a volunteer, that is)!

Our volunteer team is comprised of dedicated people who are passionate about history and education! No matter where your talents lie, we have an opportunity for you.

We have a wide array of opportunities throughout the Museum from helping at special events to giving tours to office help; we can use your skills. The GRPM inspires passionate curiosity and our volunteers carry that passion to the next level.
