Volunteer at the Main Street Museum!!!

The Main Street Museum is a great place to visit, and a great place to volunteer. You can do everything from staffing open hours (Thursday - Sunday, 1 - 6 p.m.), to helping out with arranging and maintaining displays, researching and writing museum labels, bringing the refreshments or setting up for special events like concerts and First Fridays open house nights, or helping create special exhibits and special events. Internships are occasionally available for meaningful projects. Past interns have researched and written labels for a Nitrous Oxide Canister, Tramps and Hobos, White Tailed Deer, FiestaWare and more. Interns also engage in field/study trips around Vermont and New Hampshire—to Burlington, to St. Johnsbury and the Fairbanks Museum, to historic Windsor, Vermont, and to the St. Gaudens National Park in nearby Cornish, N.H.—as well as conducting in-depth tours of the areas' varied thrift stores and other repositories of material culture for collection excursions on behalf of the Museums ever-enlarging categories of artifacts. Whether it be free-wheeling research, carpentry, photography, event planning, landscaping, or music - whatever it is that you like to do, we'd love to talk to you.
