Volunteer Opportunities

The Dearborn Historical Museum is always looking for people interested in helping preserve our city’s history.
If you have some free time, please consider becoming a volunteer!

Below are some volunteer positions the museum is currently trying to fill. All hours are flexible. If you have questions please call (313)565-3000.

Mc-Fadden Ross House Docent:
Looking for someone to help us keep the McFadden-Ross House open and accessible to the public. Volunteers would need to be willing to assist visitors by answering questions or directing them to exhibits.
This position would not require lifting or standing for long periods of time. We will need multiple volunteers to fill this position!
Hours this position is available: Tuesday through Friday, 9am to 4pm.

Digitizing the Historian:
The museum is currently in the process of digitizing our quarterly publication The Dearborn Historian so that it can be more readily available to people out-of-state or for people who use PDF readers. This position would require a volunteer to use the office printer to scan copies and then download them digitally. Computer experience is not required for this position, but it is highly recommended.
This position does not require lifting, but it does require standing for long periods of time.
Hours this position is available: Tuesday through Friday, 8am to 5pm.

Data Entry:
The museum is currently digitally updating our collection records. Volunteers interested in this position should be familiar and comfortable with computers. Volunteers will be using Windows and Past Perfect software; basic training will be available.
Hours this position is available: Tuesday through Friday, 8am to 5pm.

Grant Writer:
The museum is looking for people who have experience with and/or writing grants. Admission to the Dearborn Historical Museum is based entirely on donation; help us keep it that way!

If you don’t see a volunteer position here that interests you, there are still many general volunteer opportunities available! Please contact the museum at (313)565-3000 or stop by the museum office and we’ll be happy to find something that fits you and your schedule.
