Learn about Volunteering at T/m

Volunteer

Volunteers are a vital part of The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures. They support the museum’s mission and share their talents and passion for the collection with visitors. All volunteers enjoy special benefits such as discounts in the museum store, enrichment opportunities, and exclusive events.

If you would like to join our dedicated community of volunteers, the following volunteer positions are currently available:

DOCENT VOLUNTEERS
Docent volunteers are educators trained to further the public’s knowledge and understanding of the museum collections. They deliver tours and talks, and create a welcoming environment for museum visitors.

Docent volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, have excellent customer service and public speaking skills, attend a 8-week training course, and pass a tour review with the Museum Educator.

PROGRAMMING VOLUNTEERS
Programming volunteers engage visitors at activity tables in the galleries. This includes giving talks about a daily topic, handling Education Collection objects, and leading crafts.

Programming volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, have excellent customer service and public speaking skills, and attend a training course.
