Play. Inspire. Volunteer.

At the Children's Museum of Southern Minnesota,

you can make a difference.

Volunteers are an important part of our team at the Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota. We welcome individuals and groups, age 16 and older, who appreciate the power of play and enjoy interacting with children and families.  There are ongoing and special volunteer opportunities, with scheduling options to fit your personal lifestyle.

Prefer to serve behind the scenes?  Join our sewing team, help us maintain our beautiful gardens, work side by side with our fabrication staff as we build and repair exhibits. The possibilities are endless.

The Children’s Museum is a fun place for groups to volunteer together, and we offer internship and service learning opportunities.

Stop in for a tour and to visit with our staff!
