  • Do you have a flexible schedule?
  • Are you excited to learn about Door County’s rich maritime history?
  • Do you find yourself telling stories and sharing history?

If you answered “yes!” to any of the above questions, the perfect volunteer opportunity awaits you at the Door County Maritime Museum! Did you think to yourself, “I’ve never done this before.”? Well, you have nothing to worry about, because museum staff provides all necessary instruction and hands-on training.

The Door County Maritime Museum is open seven days a week from 10:00am to 5:00pm with tours scheduled as early as 8:00 am. With the wide variety of hours and tours available, there are volunteer opportunities available for everyone’s schedule.
