Learn Fascinating Facts as a Museum Volunteer Around Carrollton

If you're looking for a fun way to give back, become a museum volunteer. You'll learn fascinating facts as you give tours, help with events, and more. The places searching for a museum volunteer near our Carrollton apartments include:

A.W. Perry Homestead Museum

Offering a look back in time, the A.W. Perry Homestead Museum highlights what life was like in north central Texas at the turn of the 20th century. A.W. and Sarah Perry relocated to Carrollton in 1844. They claimed 640 acres and constructed a home on the property in the late 1850s. Their son and daughter-in-law tore the home down in 1909 and used some of the lumber to build the house that still stands today. In fact, the museum is always looking for docents and tour guides. They also help with group tours, scheduled school visits, and special events. Research and other opportunities may also be available.

Cavanaugh Flight Museum

Drawing aviation buffs from across the United States, the Cavanaugh Flight Museum promotes aviation studies and showcases the country's flying history. Volunteers greet guests, answer questions, and hold tours. They may also work with the skilled staff to maintain the appearance of the aircraft. The museum is currently open Friday through Sunday between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

Dallas Museum of Art

Better known as DMA, the Dallas Museum of Art was founded in 1903. Today, it's one of the tenth-largest art museums in the United States. If you're passionate about art, become a Go van Gogh outreach volunteer. Here, you'll visit local elementary schools to encourage students to "practice visual literacy and express creativity through art-making activities. Docent roles at the museum may also be available.
