Volunteering at the Waterworks Museum
In addition to donations, we are reaching out for something even more valuable – your time.
If you love history, architecture, and big machines, you will love being a volunteer here. Be among the first to see great exhibitions, assist with public programs, and implement activities that tell Boston’s water stories. Whether you are a greeter, a facilitator, or a researcher, or if you are interested in collections, marketing, or public relations, we welcome your assistance. We will provide training for all of these opportunities.
Volunteers are a key part of the Waterworks Museum. Your help and expertise are appreciated, whether you can volunteer once a week, once a month, or once a year. If you are interested in making a donation or volunteering, please contact us at 617-277-0065.
