Volunteer @ MOI

Day-to-day operations at the museum would be impossible with out our army of talented volunteers. We welcome adults to help us lead tours, work in the museum store, and more. With a variety of available jobs and schedules, volunteering at the Museum of Idaho is a simple, fun, and fulfilling way to give back.
