| Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 | 1 Comment »

The Banning Museum is seeking volunteers and will host two Get to Know Us receptions on Friday, August 21, 2015 and Saturday, August 22, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The receptions will be held in the conference room at the Banning Museum, 401 East “M” Street, Wilmington, CA 90744.

Volunteers at the Banning Museum attend a training class to gain the background necessary to offer public tours and special group tours of the interior of the Museum, Stagecoach Barn and grounds. Once the training class is completed the volunteers are able to participate in a full range of Museum programs such as conservation and maintenance of antiques, participating in decorative arts exhibitions, special events, Museum Shop assistance, lecture and discussion committees, volunteer activities, Living History Program and School Program.

The Museum’s School Program is designed to introduce fourth grade students to local cultural and historical heritage and may require additional training to familiarize new volunteers to the program details.

Classes are every Friday from September 4 – October 23rd, 9:00 am – 12:00 noon. October 23rd is the Graduation lunch, 9:00 am- 1:30 pm.

To RSVP or for more information call the Banning Museum 310-548-7777.

  1. Hi Banning Friends and Staff,

    I work with Grand Vision Foundation in San Pedro. We are the Friends Group to the LA-city-owned Warner Grand Theatre. We are also arts producers at the Grand Annex and provide the Meet the Music in-school music education curriculum for 4th & 5th graders in San Pedro and Wilmington.

    After 20 years of serving as the Friends Groups to the gorgeous Warner Grand, we are finally taking the first steps to create a docent/tour program. I hope to connect with the Banning Museum to start learning the ropes of creating a solid historical and cultural public history program for the community.

    Thank you and see you in August,
    Taran Schindler, Program Manager
