Nevada State Museum offers new volunteer training

CARSON CITY, Nevada – Do you love Nevada history, and, more importantly, do you love sharing that knowledge with others?

If so, the Nevada State Museum has a perfect opportunity.

The museum is recruiting for volunteers, who will get a multi-day in-depth jaunt through the museum, through Battle Born Hall at the Nevada State Capitol and through the museum’s collection centers.

The fall training dates are Sept. 9, 10, 16 and 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“It is so much fun learning about Nevada and meeting nice people who visit the museum from around the world,” said tour guide Jan Davis. “And all the volunteers are helpful, friendly and just great.”

The Nevada State Museum was voted the best museum in rural Nevada by the readers of Nevada Magazine in 2018.

The training is free and comes with a tour guide handbook and name tag. Early registration is required as space is limited. Participants can reserve a spot by contacting the Nevada State Museum Education Department at nsmeducatio@nevadaculture.org or (775)687-4810 ext. 237.

New volunteers will need to complete a new volunteer application. For more information check https://www.carsonnvmuseum.org/volunteer-opportunities/.
