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 Spotlight

February 2020 - Ed Henning

February 2020 - Ed Henning

Our February 2020 Spotlight Volunteer is Ed Henning. Ed first came to the Museum in 2015 as we debuted the Elves of SantaLand animation from Boston Store and added visiting with Santa to the list of Holiday Memories activities. As a representative of THE big elf, Ed reprised a role he had done for several years at Boston Store beginning that year and is a regular part of Holiday Memories to this day.

Ed soon also became a regular volunteer with our Full Day Student Education program, both as a facilitator and with preparation of all of the various hands-on materials we use throughout the year. His easy-going demeanor is perfect for helping area children learn more about the history of Sheboygan County. And his willingness to jump in and help out with any of the activities is greatly appreciated by the staff as well.

When asked why he volunteers, Ed responded, “to me, it is really rewarding to see the smiles on the kids faces and the glimmer in their eyes. I really appreciate their feedback, even if they don’t say anything.”
