The Children's Discovery Museum always welcomes volunteers!


If you would like to make a difference in a child's life or in your community, you do not need to offer extensive amounts of time.  Whether you participate weekly or yearly, your time and effort will be valuable. Volunteering links people - it plays an essential role in connecting people to one another, building healthier and stronger families and communities. 

Volunteers will receive two free admission passes, and a 5% discount in the museum shop. If you are interested in volunteering at the Museum, please call us at (218)-326-1900.

Volunteer Opportunities:

*Interact with families: Especially children by pretending to be the customer, the patient, the family member, or the co-worker. Help supervise children.

*Re-Set exhibits:
You can help reset props and exhibits for the next group of children (disassemble train tracks, dress dolls, sort puzzle pieces, hang up costumes, etc.).

*Assist with special events:
An extra set of hands are always helpful during special events like our HO HO HO DOWN or the Emerald City Festival.

*Care for the fish and tank:
We have some special friends at the museum that the kids love to watch dart around their tank.

*Mend Costumes or repair broken toys:
With hundreds of children playing with the same toys each week, they need some occasional TLC.

*Assist with periodic mailings:
Not everyone knows we offer FREE field trips for schools! And we like to try and get the word out so more can enjoy our museum.

*Prepare art materials for school groups.
A lot of set up goes into each and every field trip.
