Museum Volunteer Opportunities
The upcoming year includes a variety of exhibitions and projects at the Roseau County Historical Society Museum and Research Center. Now is your chance to become part of a volunteer team of enthusiastic members.
Volunteers play an important role for Roseau County Historical Society (RCHS) bringing skills, experience, and enthusiasm to the visitors of the museum. They provide valuable support to the staff and add to the quality of visitors’ experiences. Volunteers are vital to the museum and research center’s success.
A volunteer may assist as a receptionist, answering the phone, taking messages, and scheduling programs and activities for school groups and the public. Volunteers may act as tour guides, give special object talks, brief incoming school groups, and help with special events, with membership mailings and the newsletter.
Behind-the-scenes volunteers assist paid staff by helping with collection management and collection care by registering and photographing incoming donations, doing data entry, and working with exhibit development or design.
Research center volunteers file information from newspapers, memorial cards, etc; research for upcoming exhibits and incoming genealogy requests or enter research center information into the computer.
Applicants must be dedicated, motivated, courteous, and friendly to all and at least 16 years or older. If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding experience, contact the museum or a member of the Board of Directors.
The Roseau County Historical Society strives to match volunteer skills to a position.

It all helps, even it is only an hour, a day, a week or on a regular basis.
