Volunteer at Old World Wisconsin!
Volunteers play a vital role at Old World Wisconsin by offering both their time and talents. With over 200 volunteers who contribute over 13,000 hours annually, volunteers work throughout all of Old World Wisconsin’s museum departments. From behind-the-scenes opportunities in collections and maintenance, to front-line positions like guest greeter or costumed interpreter, volunteers are an integral part of the Old World Wisconsin team.
A few of the available opportunities includes :
Special Event / School Tour Greeter
Historical Garden Assistant
Farm Program Maintenance or Events
Historic Base Ball Player
Special Events – July 4th; Legends and Lore; An Old World Christmas
If you love history and enjoy interacting with people, please contact Old World Wisconsin for more information on volunteer opportunities. Uniforms and/or period clothing are provided. Old World Wisconsin is owned and operated by the Wisconsin Historical Society and background checks are routine.
Our Teen Volunteers are called “Apprentice Facilitators” and are part of a summer long preparatory program that lets these Future Historians take the reins and bring history to life for our guests. Click here to learn more!
