Volunteer Opportunities

We love volunteers!! If you love interacting with children and families, and can make a commitment, the Museum has possibilities in the following areas:

  • Paper Making
    Teach visitors to make paper, share its significance in Holyoke’s history, and help run one of our most popular hands on exhibits.
  • Museum Guide
    Guide visitors in interacting with exhibits, highlight important educational topics.
  • Birthday Party Buddy
    Help set up for parties, and attend to guests needs.
  • Arts and Crafts
    Volunteers are always needed to help with a daily craft project. We provide all the supplies but welcome new ideas.

You might have a talent you’d like to share that is not on this list, so please give us a call. For more information, please contact Juli Colón at 413-536-7048 ext. 101.

*Volunteers are very special to us. In order to properly train individuals and guarantee a wonderful experience we require that you commit to at least 6 months time or 100 hours. Summer volunteers must work at least one full day per week.


Great opportunities exist for interesting, exciting and specialized internships aimed at benefiting both the students needs and the needs of the Museum.

Please call the Executive Director, Abigail Scanlon at 413-536-7048 x106 for more information
