Museum Foyer

The benefits of volunteering can be rewarding to both the volunteer as well as the venue and industry in which they spend their time.  The Wyandotte Museums campus has many opportunities available to those who wish to volunteer.  Whether for resume-building or networking, meeting new people, obtaining new skills, or simply getting out of the house, we may have what you’re looking for!

Do you love to garden?

Have you ever attended the Cemetery Walk and wondered how you could get involved?

Are you interested in getting acquainted with the campus collections?

Do you like to talk to or interact with people?

If you even shrugged a “yes” to any of the above, get in touch with us as we are always looking for volunteers interested in helping with events, collections, landscaping and painting, and acting as a docent to lead tours.

Volunteers have devoted hundreds of thousands of hours over the past six decades to the education of visitors, collections of city and area memorabilia, execution of events, and the overall betterment of Wyandotte, and here are a few testimonials from some of those dedicated folks:

“I was born and raised in Wyandotte. I volunteered as a docent for many years, retired a few years ago, but am still happily active for all events. I feel it is an honor to share the history of our MacNichol Home along with the history of our city.”

“I love working at the museum because of all of the fun events they host and the friendly awesome people who work there.”

                                                                                                                                                                --Clyde Granzeier

“Volunteering at the Wyandotte museum has allowed me to indulge my inner history nerd while (hopefully) promoting the importance of local history and opening people’s eyes to things they didn’t know.  Besides, where else would I get the privilege of spending quality time with my family in a cemetery every October?  That is wholesome family fun!!”
