Volunteers Needed! Do you love talking about old cars? Do you have a friendly, outgoing personality? If you're interested in supporting the Museum as a volunteer while also having fun – we are looking for you!

As a volunteer, you would generally need to be available one to two days each month on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday afternoon. Volunteer shifts will be for approximately 4 hours per shift. We will have our next bi-annual Volunteer Training Class on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 at 6:00 pm.

Duties Performed

Mostly, our volunteers are assigned to assist the public out on the exhibit floor and to assist with basement tours.

Example assignments may include:

  • Answering guest questions (to the best of your knowledge) and engaging with guests when approached.
  • Dusting cars. There are microfiber dusters located at the Front Desk in the far left cabinet.
  • “Caboosing” basement tours; that is, you will follow behind the basement tour groups and ensure guests stay together and inside the yellow lines.
  • Ensuring guests do not get into the cars or touch them. You may open doors and hoods for genuinely interested guests when asked.
