Volunteer Opportunities

Make a difference.

Volunteering at the Duluth Children’s Museum is a priceless investment.

You can be a part of the growth and learning that take place when children and families interact through play. Join in the fun and help make an impact that will last a lifetime!


First Friday Events

Every first Friday of the month we have an after-hours event that is free to the public. Each month is a new theme with different stations! Volunteers would arrive at 3:45 p.m. for a short orientation, and then help run these exciting stations. The First Friday events are form 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. and are fun for all ages, even the adults! For more information contact the volunteer coordinator listed below!
