Volunteers to work at the museum. Each month this is the highest on our priority list. A volunteer docent (museum attendant) volunteers one or two regular shifts each month. Weekdays and Saturdays are 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sundays are 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Docents greet guests and accept their admission, provide audio tour units and treasure hunts to guests, handle shop sales, and provide information on exhibits as needed. Some docents enjoy working paired with a friend or family member. Training is provided and a docent manual is available at all times. Experience with miniatures is not required.
Junior Docents. The minimum age for a junior docent is 14. Junior docents typically volunteer one weekend day per month. They assist the adult docents by greeting guests, helping with admission and shop sales, and keeping the rooms tidy.
Clerical Help. On occasion volunteers are needed to assist with mailings, data entry or other projects. Some projects may be done at home. Specialized help, such as desktop publishing or museum software knowledge, is also welcome.
Building and Grounds Help. The museum often needs help with minor repairs, carrying objects, and cleanup.
