Museum Ambassador Program (MAP):
All museum gallery volunteers begin here!
We need welcoming, informed, guest-oriented and engaging Museum Ambassadors to make a difference in our visitors’ experience.
Every volunteer begins by learning about our Quality Standards, welcoming everyone we interact with and maintaining a safe and clean environment for our guests. Spend time across all our museums, from our late-Jurassic Galeamopus to our historical Public Landing or help our smallest guests in Little Sprouts Farm. Looking to dive a little deeper, to work along our educational team in learning and interpretation? After you complete the Museum Ambassador training, you may choose to continue growing your volunteer experience by selecting one of three museum tracks.Hide full description

Museum Center’s collection encompass more than 1.8 million artifacts, art works and archives and is incorporated into our exhibition, research and education programs. In addition, Museum Center has been working with our collaborate partner, the Ohio Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, to protect the Richard and Lucille Durrell Edge of Appalachia Preserve System for more than 50 years. The Preserve is the largest privately-owned protected natural area in Ohio at 16,000 acres. It provides critical habitats for more than 100 rare plant and animal species. The Eulett Center is Museum Center's research and education facility at the Preserve. It has increased staff research capabilities, greatly expanded opportunities for educational programming and has enhanced the Preserve's relationship with the Adams County community.|
