The Molly Brown House Museum Needs You!
Register now to attend our next volunteer training at the Molly Brown House Museum. All volunteers are asked to complete a two-day course that includes tours of the Museum focusing on original artifacts and restoration, discussions with current volunteers on Brown family history and how to create a tour, as well as emergency preparedness and museum basics.
Molly Brown House Museum volunteers are interested in history and enjoy working with a diverse range of people. People who can spare just two mornings or afternoons a month, enjoy cooking and baking, are looking for new ways to meet people and love history are perfect candidates. Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet others who share interests and to spend time in one of Denver’s most prestigious and authentic Victorian homes. Volunteers receive complete training, free parking and many other benefits.
To register for the training or to learn more about volunteering, call Kim Popetz at (303) 832-4092, ext 16 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer docents lead groups through Margaret Brown’s Victorian home and tell about the life of this remarkable woman and her times. The museum’s staff provides on-site training with topics including the life of Margaret Brown, restoration techniques, the Victorian era, group management skills, and public speaking. Docents should enjoy learning and teaching about history and like working with people of all ages. The museum asks for a 6- to 8-hour commitment per month. Docents must be 16 or older.
Victorian Eating Experience
Victorian Eating Experience Volunteers create and serve authentic Victorian dining experiences for guests, including teas, luncheons and dinners. Victorian Eating Experience volunteers should enjoy cooking, Victorian etiquette and working with people of all ages.
We envision our greeters to be folks who are comfortable talking with the public and willing to answer questions. While they may get questions about the House or Margaret, we expect the bulk of the questions to relate to parking, restaurants and other activities in Denver. Greeters will be asked to work 6 hours per month during heavy volume times.
During the summer months of June, July and August, youth between the ages of 10 and 16 assist docents in leading tours through the Museum. Pages should have an interest in history and enjoy working with people of all ages.
