Volunteer Opportunities

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 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 needs your help to deliver a dynamic experience to our guests! Adult and youth volunteers (must be at least 14 years of age or have finished the 8th grade) are our lifeblood. Please consider supporting our mission.

If you have questions about our Volunteer Program and how you can enrich your life while providing a wonderful community service, simply call 954.713.0921 or email
