Volunteer Opportunities at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery

We offer several rewarding opportunities for volunteers to be a part of the Boonshoft team! Volunteers are dedicated to helping the museum bring educational and fun experiences and memories to visitors and families of all ages. Whether they are leading a science activity about the planets in our solar system, talking about the amazing animals in our zoo, or helping out behind the scenes on projects, volunteers increase the overall experience for our guests.

All our volunteers receive a basic orientation to learn about the Boonshoft Museum and review polices. Each volunteer will also receive training for their specific position, and work alongside staff in their assignments.
