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. Training sessions are held twice a year in Spring and Fall.
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 Living History School Program is designed to introduce fourth grade students to local cultural and historical heritage and requires additional training to familiarize new volunteers to the program details.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Public Tours of the Museum, Stagecoach Barn and grounds
- Conservation and Maintenance of Antiques
- Decorative Arts Exhibitions
- Lecture and Discussion Committees
- Living History Program
- Museum Shop
- School Programs
- Special Events
