Volunteer at the Museum
Sue & Patty, friends who enjoy volunteering together.
The City Museum is looking for dedicated and excited members of the community to volunteer with us. When asked, here are some things current volunteers say about what they enjoy when working at the Museum:
"I enjoy meeting people from around the world."
"Sharing life in Juneau with visitors is quite appealing. Many come (to the Museum) not only to view the past but to ask about the Juneau present, especially why we live here and what brought us to Juneau. These "openers" create winsome dialogues that make volunteering a genial way to give tourists and yourself a fun summer."
"I enjoy meeting and getting to know other volunteers, many of whom have lived here all their life and have interesting stories to tell."
"During the "quiet season" I enjoy the quiet, the little projects, and having time to knit."
There are numerous opportunities for getting involved at the City Museum, from public positions such as staffing the reception desk to behind-the-scenes work like assisting with collections management. Click here for more information about types of volunteer activities.
If you are interested in speaking with a Museum staff member about volunteering, please contact us. We would love to find a way to have you join the crew.

Hours & Admission
The Juneau-Douglas City Museum fosters among its diverse audiences an awareness of Juneau's cultural heritage, values and community memory so we may draw strength and perspective from the past, inspire learning, and find purpose for the future. As a public trust, we collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit those materials that document the cultures and history of the Juneau and Douglas area.
