Volunteers make the work and programs at the Illinois State Museum possible.

Mary Ann MacLean Play Museum Facilitators
We are recruiting volunteers for the Mary Ann MacLean Play Museum, an exciting place where children ages 3-10 can learn -- through play -- about art, people, and nature. Friendly, energetic volunteers are needed to greet and interact with families and groups and keep the exhibit neat. Volunteers must be adults or teens 16 and up and able to work 2 shifts a month. Training is provided. Interested? Apply today! For more information contact Elizabeth Bazan at volunteer@illinoisstatemuseum.org or 217-558-6696.

Group Greeters
The Museum is in need of volunteers interested in greeting school and youth groups visiting the Museum. Greeters provide an introduction to the Museum, and assist students and chaperons in exploring the exhibitions. Volunteers must be adults or teens ages 18 and up and be able to work on weekdays. Training is provided. For more information contact Elizabeth Bazan at volunteer@illinoisstatemuseum.org or 217-558-6696.
