Learn about Volunteering at T/m

Volunteering at T/m

Are you a storyteller with a passion for art and history who, more importantly, loves sharing that passion with others? Then come volunteer at The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures! Volunteers are vital community partners who support T/m’s mission to educate, inspire, and delight.

All volunteers enjoy special benefits such as 20% off in the museum store, special invites to exhibit openings and volunteer appreciation events, first-hand museum experience, and a connection to a vibrant volunteer community.

T/m volunteers fall under the museum’s Learning and Engagement department and communicate primarily with the Museum Educator Volunteers and Group Tours.

Although volunteers primarily interact with visitors by leading guided tours, staffing and prepping educational programs, and providing educational “pop-up” programs in the galleries, special projects within the Development, Marketing, and Visitor Services departments are available on an as-needed basis.

Applicants must pass a background check and spend several weeks training on T/m’s history and collection with the Museum Educator. T/m offers a flexible volunteer schedule with a minimum commitment of one shift every three months.

Want to share your talents with T/m and its visitors? Please fill out and submit the volunteer application on this page. Include your name, contact information, and any interests/skills that you’d like to share with us.

For additional information, contact or call 816-235-8011.
