volunteer opportunities

Lincoln Heritage Museum has a volunteer opportunity for everyone

Consider volunteering at Lincoln Heritage Museum! We offer flexible hours Tuesday through Saturday.

Get Involved in history


Lincoln Heritage Museum boasts a large collection of Abraham Lincoln, Lincoln College and local history artifacts. Volunteers have the unique opportunity to work hands on with the collection by transcribing and catologuing documents. For those who enjoy a desk assignment, there is plenty to do behind-the- scenes. Database entry, mailings and general administrable duties are some of the projects available.



Greet Visitors


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 field trips 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.


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.
