We love our volunteers!

Depending on your time and interests  you can support the museum mission in one of three volunteer categories.

Visitor Services

Visitor Services volunteers staff the  museum during regular  business hours. Duties include greeting visitors,  handling gift shop  sales, and helping during special events. A typical  commitment is one  or two 2 1/2 hour shifts each month. All training is provided  and no  special knowledge is required – just a love of rocks!

Teaching & Events Team

Teaching & Events Team volunteers  participate as leads or  assistants in educational programs and events such as  Youth Learning  Tours, Geo-Workshops, and the Rock Party. No special experience  or  training is required to be an assistant for our great educational  activities.

Support Team

Support Team volunteers are those with particular  skills who help out on special projects or for special needs, such as:

  • Repairs
  • Woodworking
  • Painting
  • Writing articles
  • Electrical
  • Computers

Volunteers will receive orientation and  training, and will  receive special benefits in appreciation of their service.  Please  contact us at 208-283-3186 or send an email to contact.us@idahomuseum.org if you are interested in joining our volunteer team.

Volunteers make it happen!
