We appreciate our Volunteers!

Volunteers working together with the Executive Team Staff, Board Members and Stakeholders to help make the museum a better place in our community. The Museum has a system in place and a strategic plan to grow the museum. There are many elements involved in the running of a museum, many are ‘front of house’ many are ‘behind the scenes’ – all play a necessary and vital role. Volunteer involvement operates on a team model that coordinates with the Executive Team. This way we hope no one gets burnt out – and plans are coordinated so that if need be others can step in to complete a task as required.  Team Leaders – plan and organize a team to do a specific function, organize a specific event etc. If you would like to be a museum volunteer, please send us a message using the email form above and we will send you an application. Or drop into the museum. It is fun being a volunteer, there is something for everyone!

Please note: Volunteers working with children require a current police check. Thank you.
