Volunteer Opportunities

The Museum’s continued success would not be possible without our dedicated volunteers, who contribute to all aspects of the life of the museum. Volunteers greet and guide visitors, assist with cataloguing our collection, look after the museum buildings and grounds, operate the museum steam engine, and work with the museum staff in building exhibits and presentations. Volunteers are key to the success of our special events, such as our famous Innkeeper’s Dinner and Flavours of Perth BBQ, and the Museum’s Board of Directors are also volunteers. In each of these, and many other ways, volunteers fulfill our mission of being an active and vibrant contributor to the life of all of our communities. We are always looking for new ways to include volunteers in the daily life of the Museum. If you would like to join our team, please us today.
