You can inspire students to think like historians and engage them with fun, object-based activities. Curiosity Guides help students to peel back the onion and find out what artifacts can tell us about the past. We have both guided and self-guided in-person field trips. These field trips, such as our journalist-themed History Now! program, are a fun and engaging opportunity for students to interact with objects in the museum. We are looking for volunteers to assist with tours by leading students down curious paths with our touchable carts.  History expertise is not required, but being a curious person yourself is. We don't expect you to have all the answers; we just want you to care about asking questions! This is a great opportunity for pre-service teachers, retired educators, or those who enjoy working with children. Having theater or teaching experience is a plus.

Volunteer opportunities are available March 30 - May 19, 2022. Monday - Friday

Hours vary 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
