Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Castle Museum! We have many areas available for volunteers to work, from our special events to leading tours through our galleries to helping maintain our gardens and grounds.  

If you have free time during a week day or weekend day, and are looking for a rewarding, engaging experience, then volunteering at the Museum may be for you. Our volunteers donate their time by bringing their skills and life-experience to support the Museum's mission.
