Join us! Volunteer at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History. We have a large and diverse volunteer core that helps the Museum to accomplish its mission each and every day.
Being a Volunteer at the Museum means something different to each of our almost 400 volunteers. That’s because each individual has their own unique reason for choosing to spend their discretionary time at the Museum. It’s also because our Volunteer Program offers individuals a variety of ways to get involved and to customize their volunteer experience.
We place individuals in volunteer positions by matching the individual’s skills, interests and abilities to the position. Volunteers work closely with a staff or peer mentor and receive on-the-job training. Some volunteer positions, such as our Museum Docents and members of our Heritage Park Restoration Team, require additional training due to the nature of the position.
How much time you commit to the Museum is up to you. Most volunteers contribute two to four hours of volunteer work a week, but some volunteers choose to spend much more time at the Museum. Scheduling is dependent on the volunteer position or the volunteer project. We do require a consistent commitment and rely on your dependability.
In addition to all the intangible benefits you receive when you choose to volunteer, the Museum offers:
