Join Our Volunteer Team

There is a rich tradition of volunteer service in Spokane. Even nearly 100 years ago, in 1919, the Spokane Red Cross Chapter had a substantial volunteer force. (Pictured Above) Your museum is a great place to keep the tradition of volunteer service alive!

Volunteers at the Eastern Washington State Historical Society/Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture serve a vital service to our region’s cultural community and are an integral component of the museum’s support staff. Volunteering at our museum is a unique opportunity for people of all ages to challenge themselves in fun and interesting ways.
