Over 300 MOR volunteers contributed over 28,000 hours in 2015. Needless to say, we couldn’t provide many of our Museum services without our talented and dedicated volunteers, and they provide vital support to the Museum and our community as a whole. In return, MOR volunteers enjoy the camaraderie of working with visitors, staff, and their counterparts; opportunities for life-long learning; and the satisfaction of knowing they are making a valuable contribution.
Volunteer opportunities range from staffing activity carts to preparing fossils, helping with our Museum Family Days, joining a benefit event planning committees, helping with security, putting together mailings, and giving guided tours. Plus, each summer volunteer interpreters at the Living History Farm demonstrate the day-to-day activities of a Montana farm in the 1890s.
For more information about volunteer opportunities at the Museum of the Rockies, please call the Volunteer Office at 406.994.6611. Applications can be accessed on this page or at the front desk of the Museum. Please see our list of current openings below to see if there is a position available in which you might be interested.
