Volunteers paint the Sheldon Museum's historic barn


If you have an interest in Addison County and Vermont history, enjoy interacting with the public, or appreciate the atmosphere of an historic house, then the Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History is the place for you! We invite you to join our wonderful community of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds.

Volunteer positions include docents, school program assistants, collections assistants, Museum Shop attendants, buildings and grounds workers, research assistants, office workers, and special events assistants. Some jobs require a regular commitment while others are for a specific project or event.

Museum volunteers participate in an annual Volunteer Enrichment Series each spring, receive on-the-job training, and a variety of benefits including free admission to many Vermont museums and historic sites.

What special skills could you bring to the Henry Sheldon Museum? If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mary Ward Manley, Associate Director, at (802) 388-2117 or at mmanley@henrysheldonmuseum.org
