The Mini Time Machine Museum volunteers are important people who work out front and behind-the –scenes with museum staff to provide a museum experience that is fun, educational and engaging for community members of all ages. Volunteers work an average of 4 hours per week performing a variety of duties in three areas: Education, Operations and Gallery Support.

Currently we are looking for individuals willing to work with children to become docents and work with Outreach Presenters.
