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

Petra Boldt

Petra Boldt

Our January 2019 Spotlight Volunteer is a newer face to the Museum, but one that many might still recognize.  Petra Boldt has only been volunteering with the Museum for about seven months, but has quickly become a regular face. Since beginning volunteering, Petra has spent countless hours assisting with the Front Desk, particularly on Fridays and during Holiday Memories. She has also been a great “behind the scenes” volunteer, working on preparing materials for upcoming programs and activities, helping with mailings, and making treats for the Holiday Memories cookie table.

When asked why she volunteers, Petra said “I moved to Sheboygan in 2011 and fell in love with the city. I fell in love with the Museum during The Golden Age of Video Arcade Games exhibit and started volunteering soon after. What better way to learn more about Sheboygan than by immersing myself in its rich history by volunteering at the Museum.”
