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

April 2020 - Tom Wiegand

April 2020 - Tom Wiegand

Our April 2020 Spotlight Volunteer is Tom Wiegand. Tom has been volunteering at the Museum since Fall 2018, after retiring from Festival Foods. He has become a regular part of our Full-Day Student Education Programs, facilitating many of the various hands-on activities. He also helps out in the summer at our Busy Bee Days as we prepare hands-on materials for the coming year. During our “down time” for Education Programs, Tom also helps us make sure that Bruce the Spruce isn’t sleeping on the job!
When asked why he volunteers, Tom said, “I volunteer because I love history, especially Sheboygan County history. My family has been in the area since the 1850’s. Upon retirement I saw the education programs, and knew it was for me. I always wanted to teach and the program fills that need. I love the interaction with the kids and I get even more interaction with the kids during Holiday Memories when I help with Bruce the Spruce. The kids really keep me on my toes with questions and interacting, but I love doing it!”
