For those who enjoy a desk assignment, there is plenty to do behind-the- scenes. Database entry, cataloguing documents, mailings and general administrable duties are some of the projects available. Volunteers can learn from their experiences helping in a specialized area such as marketing, graphic design, or membership. Those who like an office environment will enjoy these volunteer opportunities.
Another great way to make a difference at the Lincoln Heritage Museum is to volunteer your time and skills at our special events. Or you can choose to work behind-the- scenes, up front at Visitor Services Desk or by facilitating hands on visitor experiences. Also, volunteers ages 16 and up are a vital part of the success of the Lincoln Heritage Museum.
Join the friendly and informative Lincoln Heritage Museum staff in welcoming and guiding museum visitors. You can volunteer during regular museum hours or at special events like the Learn from Lincoln, Live like Lincoln Lectures and the Civil War Walk. Helping at the front desk gives you the opportunity not only to attend special events but helping in sharing the life, legacy, and character of Abraham Lincoln.
