Volunteering at the Museum of Cultural and Natural History is a great opportunity for students pursuing any major or career track. As a volunteer, you will assist staff during educational programs which will help you enhance skills like public speaking and teamwork while learning about many different topics. This will also help you connect and network with other students and the Mount Pleasant and CMU communities. Other opportunities sometimes arise including exhibit research and preparation, collections processing, and special projects at the museum. Museum Studies students will gain real hands-on experience that is essential for career preparation and successful job placement in the museum field.
