Volunteers have more fun

The Museum offers many opportunities for involvement. In fact, much of the exciting work of the Museum is done by committed volunteers and interns, including hands-on work with artifacts, researching and developing exhibits, guiding visitors and organizing events.

 

Some volunteers prefer a regular schedule; others prefer to work on short-term projects. Some prefer to work with adults; others with kids. Some prefer to work with data; others with artifacts. To discuss ways that you would like to contribute, please get in touch with kit@putnamcountymuseum.org
