Volunteer with the Indiana State Museum

Become a part of something bigger

The Indiana State Museum is the crossroads of everything interesting, educational and unique about the state. It’s a family-friendly gathering place within a unique architectural treasure where original works of art, hands-on experiences and an atmosphere that invites exploration and discovery are ever-evolving. We invite you to become a part of this exciting museum as a volunteer.
