Volunteer Opportunities

The Illinois State Museum is successful because of our great volunteers.  Each Illinois State Museum location has different opportunities and process for application. To see listings and application procedure for a specific location, please click the appropriate link on this page.      

Volunteer with us!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the volunteer program has been put temporarily on hold. Please contact our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@illinoisstatemuseum.org to be notified of the Museum's next volunteer opportunity. Thank you for your interest.
