Volunteer at Mystic Seaport Museum

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us. Rewarding opportunities wait for you in many of Mystic Seaport Museum’s departments. With opportunities ranging from one-time projects or events to several shifts per week interpreting our exhibits, there is truly something for everyone who wants to contribute time and talents to the Museum.  Whether helping to direct visitors with our Visitor Services department, weeding gardens, assisting the Shipyard with boat maintenance or the Facilities Department with building maintenance, volunteers are vitally important to operating our world-class institution.

Junior Volunteer Program

The Junior Volunteers (ages 13-17) at Mystic Seaport Museum are an integral part of the summer operations at the Museum. Their contributions enhance the visitors’ experience and enable Mystic Seaport Museum to enrich and extend its program offerings. Junior volunteer opportunities are varied and extend through a number of Mystic Seaport Museum departments. Applications for the Junior Volunteer Program will be made available in spring 2020.
