Volunteer

At Exploration Place, volunteers are an integral part of fulfilling our mission and performing a variety of jobs to keep the entire organization on the path to making science fun for everyone! Volunteers participate in activities that enhance your personal growth while serving a valued role to the museum and science education for our guests.

If you’re eager to volunteer, begin by completing an application for one of our Special Event Opportunities. If you’re interested in volunteering but would like more information about a regular volunteer shift, please fill out a general application. If you’re a current volunteer, log in to your volunteer profile to sign up for the latest available opportunities.

Special Event Opportunities

  • Superhero Sleepovers
