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

Due to the uncertainty that COVID-19 has brought to the Museum, the Junior Volunteer Program for Summer 2020 has been cancelled. The Junior Volunteers (ages 13-17) at Mystic Seaport Museum have always been an integral part of the summer operations at the Museum and we hope to resume this valuable program in 2021.
