If you love Nevada history, and, more importantly, sharing knowledge with others, then the Nevada State Museum has a perfect opportunity.
The museum is recruiting for volunteers, who will get a multi-day in-depth jaunt through the museum’s collections and operations.
The upcoming training sessions are Monday, February 25; Tuesday, February 26; Monday, March 4 and Tuesday, March 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
New volunteers will be given a comprehensive tour of the museum and collections centers, a tour of Battle Born Hall at the State Capitol, and a tour guide handbook. Existing volunteers will learn about what’s new at the museum and upcoming programs.
This training will also highlight Stewart Indian School, Nevada State Railroad Museum and the Nevada State Museum’s plans for the sesquicentennial of the Mint Building in 2020. (The Nevada State Museum is housed in the former U.S. Branch Mint, which minted gold and silver coins in the late 19th century.)
The training is free and comes with a tour guide handbook and name tag. Space is limited, so participants can reserve a spot by contacting the Nevada State Museum Education Department at email@example.com or (775)687-4810 ext 237.
New volunteers will need to complete a new volunteer application. For more information check http://nvculture.org/nevadastatemuseumcarsoncity/volunteer-opportunities/.
