Discovery Museum Gallery Helper

VA Discovery Museum

Do you like kids? Want to get a chance to meet members of the community and help them have a fun and educational experience? The Virginia Discovery Museum may be a great fit for you! Located on the Downtown Mall, we are conveniently located within walking distance of Grounds, can be reached by the trolley, and also provide parking validation for our volunteers.

We are looking for helpers to maintain the galleries, help prep and facilitate interactive programs, and keep the museum running each day. A commitment to one shift a week over the course of a semester is preferred. Your main responsibilities would be to:

  • Interact with visitors and children and facilitate learning through exploration and play.
  • Help maintain a safe, tidy, and attractive Museum environment.
  • Assist Museum staff with preparing activities for programs, camps, and community events

Museum hours are Monday through Saturday 9:30 am-5 pm. Shifts are 2 hours minimum. All volunteers are required to be vaccinated against Covid and masked at all times.

Orientation takes place during your first shift. To learn more and apply, click the link below. For any questions, please contact Gallery Manager Jade Dickinson.
