Description

The Nevada State Museum is recruiting for new volunteers who enjoy Nevada history. If you’re a lifelong learner and enjoy Nevada history, this is a great opportunity to join the team and increase your knowledge. Come share your enthusiasm for history with others while helping the Nevada State Museum fulfill its mission to connect visitors to Nevada stories and culture. The Nevada State Museum was voted one of Nevada’s Best Museums in 2018 by readers of Nevada Magazine! Tour Guides at the Nevada State Museum learn about Nevada’s unique natural and cultural history and lead tours of the museum and the Capitol building for children and adults. They also get a behind the scenes look at the museum’s vast collection.

New volunteers will be given a comprehensive tour of the museum and focus on Native American Heritage, as well as a tour guide handbook. Existing volunteers will increase their knowledge of Native American heritage in Nevada and museum programs.

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

The training is free and comes with a tour guide handbook and name tag. There are 4 days of training Feb. 24th, Feb. 25, Mar. 2nd and Mar. 3rd. Space is limited, so 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 http://nvculture.org/nevadastatemuseumcarsoncity/volunteer-opportunities/.
