    Volunteers: The museum benefited from over 4,500 volunteer-hours for November 2018 to November 2019! Thank you for your ongoing support.

    Volunteer Opportunities: One of the museum's primary needs is to have a two-person volunteer team to manage the greeting and gift shop at all times that we are open to the public. This allows the museum staff and specialized support volunteers may offer as many or as few hours of their time as they wish. Every volunteer is important and appreciated.
