Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Minnesota Historical Society. We are currently working working to place a large number of exisiting applicants and we have temporarily stopped accepting new volunteer applications. Explore the sample descriptions below see what some of our volunteers do.

We have divided our volunteer positions into three categories:

  • Specialist Team
    You're a specialist who wants to contribute a specific skill or area of expertise to our volunteer team. You'll work behind the scenes with staff members on projects involving marketing, grants research, website development, digitization, writing, historical research, carpentry, sewing, photography or other skills-based activities.
  • People Team
    You're the face of MNHS! You enjoy interacting with people and have great customer service skills. You may use your people talents as a museum floor greeter, History Hijinx volunteer, Baking Lab, survey assistant or library registration desk assistant and other activities focused on serving the museum's visitors.
  • Project Team
    You want to help out where you are most needed. You'll play a core service role on one-time or short-term projects, such as events, craft prep work, office work, data or evaluation entry, digitization and mailings.
