Volunteer Positions

Volunteers of all ages (16+) are needed in all aspects of the museum from special event staff to weekly docents. Technical volunteers are needed to repair, refurbish and upgrade exhibits. Builders, carpenters, painters, docents and other miscellaneous personnel are needed to help expand, maintain and assist in various events. MVP’s will assist in organizing supplies, events, fundraisers, clean and maintain current exhibits and assist in day to day operations of the museum.

With your help we can maintain a high level of programs and exhibits and continue to offer a fun, safe place where the children of Carson City and their families can come and experience the wonder and joy of learning.

Please call or come by the museum today and we will be happy to assist you in getting signed up for this wonderful new program: (775) 884-2226 – 813 N. Carson Street, Carson City, NV.
