There are many ways to volunteer at the museum, and no experience is required! Assist visitors as they immerse themselves in the sights, smells, and sounds of a fully furnished 1890’s era Indiana drugstore. We invite you to explore the many ways you can become part of this exciting and educational institution.

Volunteer Opportunities not associated with the State Fair

Greet visitors, share information about the Museum, and demonstrate a few basic tools used by pharmacists of the past. A background in pharmacy or related medical field is helpful, but not required! Our Docent / Interpreters are key to providing visitors an enjoyable and memorable visit to the museum.

Care must be given to the careful handling of the museum’s collection to ensure it stays in top condition. Volunteers periodically set-up and move artifact displays, make small repairs when needed, and assist keeping our artifacts and displays presentable.

Creating and maintaining favorable relations between the museum and its public is essential for the advancement of our mission. This is a great volunteer opportunity for individuals with a passion for posting on social media sites, blogging, and developing public relations opportunities
