Are you interested in local, state, or national history? Do you like teaching and sharing information? Do you enjoy meeting new people every day?

The Museum of Culpeper History is seeking volunteers to help with its daily operations and ongoing programs. Our volunteers allow us to put visitors in touch with the story of Culpeper’s past every day, seven days a week. Without their hard work and support, we would not be able to do the work we do!

Current Openings

DinoWalk 2024

Each year the Museum of Culpeper History partners with the local Luck Stone Quarry to provide a public access day to view Culpeper’s famous dinosaur footprints! The museum offers the DinoWalk program only once per year. Volunteers are needed on Saturday, August 24.

Volunteers will help with visitor check-in, visitor parking, visitor safety, answering visitor questions, assisting with crafts and activities, and merchandise sales.

The museum is constantly seeking docents to welcome visitors, process admissions, convey information, and make gift shop sales. Docents provide a brief orientation to visitors upon request, and may be asked to assist with any museum programs taking place during the day. Volunteer docents must make a minimum monthly commitment of six hours of volunteer work (two 3 hour shifts).

Special Event Assistant

The museum is looking for volunteers willing to help on nights and weekends when the museum attends community events. Special Event Assistants will help set up the museum’s tent with a table and informational displays, as well as talk to visitors about all the things the museum has to offer.

To learn more, visit our opportunity listings at Volunteer Match or at PATH Volunteer Hub. For more information, contact our Education Coordinator at 540-829-1749 or at [email protected].
