Volunteer Opportunities

Looking for opportunities to dive in and get messy with science? Volunteer with the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum! We are looking for committed, enthusiastic volunteers of all ages to help us with our educational programs. As a volunteer, you will get the chance to create moments of discovery and wonder for visitors of all ages. You will learn and teach STEM topics, plus become part of a great museum team. No prior knowledge or experience is needed; you provide the enthusiasm, and we’ll provide the training. This fall and winter, we will be looking for extra help facilitating World Without Ice, a special visiting exhibit experience about climate change, and our Preschool Gallery area.

Volunteer Requirements:

  • Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age.
  • Volunteers under age 18 must have parental consent.
  • Volunteers over age 18 must be able to pass a criminal background check.
  • Volunteers must be able to commit to either 3-5 hours of service a week for a minimum of three months OR 50 total service hours. Volunteer shifts are 9:45am-1:15pm and 12:45pm-4:15pm Monday-Saturday, and 11:45am-4:15pm Sundays.
