If you’re interested in a behind-the-scenes look at exhibits, come help us with traveling exhibit installations and de-installations, or our semi-annual deep cleaning and exhibit maintenance days. If working with the public is more your style, you might be interested in helping with gallery craft days, the Historic Home Tour, or the Silver Queen Ball.
