Do you want to get connected in the community of Boulder, help preserve our history, and participate in awesome art and science projects? Then volunteering with the Museum of Boulder is the perfect fit for you!

No experience? No problem! We’ll provide all necessary training and support you in whatever position works best for you. All you need is a willingness to learn and an ability to commit for one full semester (approximately 4 months.) This is a great opportunity to learn more about the history of Boulder, get experience leading groups or working behind-the-scenes at a museum, and support a local institution.

We will be holding 3 volunteer information sessions in 2021. Dates to be anounced. If you’d like to come by and learn more about the museum and our volunteer opportunities, please fill out the short form at the link below and we will reach out with the date and time of the next open house!

Our greatest needs are as follows:

Gallery Attendants who can share behind-the-scenes info with our visitors and be present to oversee the objects on display

Tour Facilitators to assist with visiting school groups of all ages

Makerspace Attendants to spend time with visitors in our Google Garage, working with tools such as a virtual reality machine, laser cutter, and other hands-on activities.

Event Facilitators to help put on our community events

Exhibit Prep Volunteers who can help us when we change over exhibits (2-3 times per year)

We have plenty of other volunteer opportunities, as well, including more public-facing and behind-the-scenes positions.


The Intern will work with the Curator of Collections to learn and perform the basic, crucial activities of collections care for the Museum of Boulder’s extensive collection of historic artifacts: accessioning new donations, adding to the digital catalogue, labeling, and storing artifacts, as well as assisting the Curator with the integrated pest management and environmental monitoring systems. Additional potential projects include preparing digital records for inclusion in a public online database; evaluating artifacts currently in the collection for their historical significance and relevance to the Museum’s mission; curating a small display for the Collections Closet at the Museum based on our collection. Other specific projects and responsibilities will be tailored to the Intern’s experience and interests.

Application is due April 15. For more information and to apply, click here.
