Volunteer Opportunities at the Trenton City Museum

Do you have office skills, web skills or people skills? Days, evenings, or weekends free? Let us know. We can use your help.

Volunteers work with trustees and staff as archivists, registrars, art handlers, and marketers, or on committees like fundraising, grant-writing, education, exhibits.  They help out at openings or in the store or whenever we need another pair of hands.  Volunteering at the Trenton City Museum means meeting new people, learning something new, sharing your expertise, and having fun while you do it.

Please email us and tell us you’d like to volunteer!  volunteers@ellarslie.org
