Augusta Museum of History volunteers contribute their time, talents and energy, helping the Museum in many valuable ways. The Augusta Museum of History has many areas available for volunteers to work with the public or behind-the-scenes, from educational activities to maintaining our collections to helping lead tours through our exhibitions. Join like-minded individuals and meet new people, gain knowledge, experience and help tell the story of our community. At the same time, you will strengthen the Museum’s mission and play an active role in its success. You do not need to have a history background to be involved. We will train you!
Volunteers are welcome to work any schedule they desire. Perhaps you can help for one afternoon or morning a week, or maybe just one Saturday a month. If that’s too much, the museum always needs extra hands for special events. We also encourage our volunteers to share our social media posts! “Like Us” and “Follow Us” on Facebook, and Instagram.
