Volunteering at the Museum

Volunteers play a major part of fulfilling UNSM’s mission of promoting natural history and world cultures through research, collections work, educational programs, and exhibits. Volunteers can assist run hands-on activities, at public programs and events, and work in the Research Collections. 

All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. While a background in science can be helpful, it is not required. Training on volunteer job duties and expectations will be provided.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our volunteer application below.

We are currently not accepting new volunteers. Applications will reopen late August.
