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

Mark Price

Mark Price

Our September 2019 Spotlight Volunteer is Mark Price. Mark has been volunteering since April 2012, when his older brother asked if he might be interested in helping out at the Museum with the many maintenance and building projects. Ever since, Mark has been a member of “Al’s Team” – the group that helps with everything from painting galleries to building exhibit cases, moving artifacts and lending a hand with the many outdoor projects at the Museum. He is also a key volunteer helping out with the monumental task of setting up the Holiday Memories exhibit platforms, backdrops, and animation. In fact, it was his idea to create a multi-year Make & Take train project!

When asked why he volunteers, Mark replied “It sounded like a great opportunity to do a lot of different things, which makes it interesting – never the same old thing each week! I enjoy doing the many different aspects of volunteer projects and I get to learn more about the Museum and things there.”
