Expand your horizons, develop outside interests, make new friends, and sometimes even discover a new talent. Volunteering comes in many forms: ushering in the AutoNation IMAX® Theater, greeting Museum guests, teaching visitors about our living creatures in the reef tank or taking people on a "ride to Mars.' If graphics is your skill, that's great, we need creative minds. If you like office work, we can use you in administrative support positions. We definitely have a job that fits everyone's skills, experience and interests.

The Museum is pleased to announce its Volunteer of the Quarter - the Florida Citrus Model Train Society. The society of 35 members donated over 5,000 hours to the museum between August 2013 and February 2014, sharing their passion for trains with Museum visitors.
They staffed two train exhibits with at least four people per day giving tours of the train displays and teaching train safety to museum guests. Some of the FCMTS members made special live presentations to guests and repaired microscopes in the museum lab. Ken Sargeant and Bill Pilger were on hand to accept the honor on behalf of FCMTS.
