Volunteers Needed!

Do you have a few hours to spare one day per week, or per month? Do you like to meet people? Maybe you can only spare a few hours on an irregular basis. Then why not volunteer that time with us at Sheboygan County Historical Museum.

We need volunteers to:

  • Work with children in our full day student programs.
  • Prepare materials for the full day student programs.
  • Work in the Museum Store on Saturdays during the season and for special events.
  • Do data entry on the computer.
  • Help with collection cataloging.
  • Be a gallery host during special events.
  • Do outside clean up work.
  • Help with any number of miscellaneous projects.

As a volunteer you meet and work with other volunteers and staff to educate people about Sheboygan County’s history. No experience or knowledge is necessary, we’ll help you learn everything you need to know.

If you would like to be a part of our exciting programs and events or would like more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Executive Director Travis Gross at the Museum (920) 458-1103.

Thank you for taking the time to help!

Volunteer Highlight

Dan Worth

Dan Worth

Our November Spotlight Volunteer is Dan Worth. Dan came to the Museum as a volunteer in 2013, primarily to assist with the electrical components of the Prange’s animation. He soon joined the group of volunteers that assist with the many maintenance and exhibit construction projects at the Museum. Dan continues to be the “go-to guy” for the animation, including doing extensive wiring restoration on the SantaLand display pieces the Museum received from Boston Store in late 2013 and expanding into some of the physical repairs many of the pieces require.  When asked why he volunteers, Dan says “I guess I volunteer for the same reason as many, an interest in history and especially what is not taught in school – local history. Working on the animation has been fun (except when arms and legs fall off) and it is a part of our past that is too easily forgotten.”
