Volunteering

The Tempe History Museum involves the public at many levels. One of the most important ways that you can get involved is as a volunteer.

With a small staff, the Museum relies heavily on a corps of volunteers. Opportunities exist for just about everyone from teens to seniors, from the shy to the outgoing, from permanent residents to winter visitors. Tempe History Museum Photo  Tempe History Museum Photo

• Cataloguing, numbering, and housing artifacts

• Giving guided tours at the Tempe History Museum and the Petersen House Museum
• Giving presentations for educational programs
• Conducting research and oral history interviews
• Constructing and installing new exhibits
