Volunteers are essential to the operations of the Rufus Porter Museum, especially during the summer months as our volunteers enable us to be open to the public.

Exhibit gallery volunteers assist visitors with information and questions about the exhibits and Rufus Porter.  Some volunteers work specifically in the museum store, while others participate on committees planning events, working with the collection, developing educational programs, helping with mailings, or caring for our buildings and grounds.  

Opportunities for volunteers: 

-Exhibit Gallery Volunteeer
