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.
Docents guide visitors throughout the museum and provide
interesting information 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:
-Administrative Assistance in the office
-Community Relations Committee (Programs & Events Planning)
If you are interested in volunteering, please download an
application and drop off at the museum. For further questions
and queries please email:
contact us by phone 207.647.2828.
