Volunteer opportunities include acting as a docent/guide, assisting with special events, helping with installation of new exhibits, museum education/outreach, marketing and social media posting.
Internships at the Cedarburg History Museum may be done for
either school credit or to gain experience.
Colleges and high schools may require internships and volunteer hours for on the job training. We will work with you to craft a specific program in your area of interest, much like an independent study. You will get experience in many facets of working in a museum from exhibits, customer experience, visitor enhancement, programming, events and more. This PDF may prove useful to you or your school in making this decision. Working at a museum is more than just studying history so your writing, marketing, graphic design, computer, photography, handicrafts, video editing, and more can all be useful in this environment.
