Opportunities for Volunteers!

Volunteer docent on flight deckMuseum volunteers are key to making the USS Midway one of the top museums in the nation. Welcoming over a million visitors a year, volunteers have plenty of opportunities in various areas to get involved. From interacting with museum guests, lending a hand in the museum library, participating in exclusive high profile and community events, to working behind the scenes preparing exhibits or answering the phone.  Midway volunteers are essential to the everyday operation of the museum and are part of a dynamic “crew” that shares in the passion of having fun, while building a greater sense of community.
Prospective volunteers must be 18 years of age and make a monthly commitment. Benefits include (but are not limited to) museum discounts, making new friends, and gaining new skills.
