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

Keith Kraemer

Keith Kraemer

Our December 2019 Spotlight Volunteer is Keith Kraemer. You might not always recognize him when he is here, but Keith has been a vital volunteer since Bruce the Spruce arrived at the Museum. He began volunteering in 2014, the first year that Bruce was a feature of our Holiday Memories exhibit.  Keith’s response to why he volunteers says it better than we ever could.

“Bruce the Spruce is just a magical memory of childhood if you grew up in Sheboygan. Sometimes a chat with Bruce was more exciting than sitting on Santa’s lap. You’d come down the stairs at Prange’s, and Bruce was there to greet you. He was your first bit of Christmas for the year. It was very sad to see Bruce and Santa the year that Yonkers was closing, possibly for the last time. No one knew if the tradition would continue. As soon as I found out that the display was moving to the museum, I jumped at the chance to fill the role of Bruce the Spruce and create those same memories for today’s kids!”
