There are several opportunities for volunteers at the Huron County Museum & Historic Gaol.
The Huron County Museum Friends co-ordinate many of the volunteer activities and also support the Museum through fundraising.
Some examples of volunteer opportunities are:
Greeting visitors at the reception desk
Greeting visitors at the Gaol Governor’s House
Assisting staff to catalogue artifacts
Assisting staff with artifact cleaning and preservation
Transcribing from archival documents
Organizing and helping with special events
Assisting with educational programmes and group tours
Assisting with exhibit development
Other volunteer opportunities in support of the Huron County Museum arise through the work of volunteer organizations such as the Goderich and District Horticultural Society, the Marine Heritage Committee, and the Huron County Historical Society.
The volunteers at the Huron County Museum are recognized during Volunteer Week each April.
