Volunteering is a great way to meet interesting people and make new friends. It is also a lot of fun! If you like interacting with people and enjoy art and history, then consider a volunteer position at the Massillon Museum. You may volunteer as little as once or twice a year or you may prefer working as often as weekly. Volunteer interests usually determine the frequency of individual work schedules.
A volunteer appreciation dinner is held annually for our volunteers. During the program, special gifts are presented to each volunteer. An added benefit for volunteers includes a discount in the Museum shop.
