Be Part of History in your Community!

Do you have an open mind and enjoy engaging with people who share a common passion for history, lifelong learning, and community engagement? Join our Volunteer & Museum Guides Program! Volunteers & Museum Guides work in support of and alongside our staff fulfilling the Museum's mission to provide powerful personal encounters with history.

Our volunteers are:

  • Guides on the Living History exhibits
  • Caretakers of historic gardens and landscapes
  • Greeters, golf cart drivers, and ushers at the Plimoth Cinema
  • Makers & innovators in the Marine Shop and at the Plimoth Grist Mill
  • Special programs and event support
  • Behind-the-scenes alongside our curators and historians

...And so much more! You don't need to be a formally trained historian to get involved at Plimoth Patuxet. All Volunteers & Museum Guides should be curious, enthusiastic, and eager to learn new things. The volunteer schedule is flexible and includes seasonal and weekend shifts.
