Here are the volunteer positions we have available for those 14 and up at The Manitoba Museum over the coming months. Training is provided for each position.

 NEW! MUSEUM GREETERS

What do you get when you mix dinosaurs with rainy weather? CROWDS! We are looking for volunteer greeters to assist with the crowds visiting the Museum over the summer by answering questions and giving directions. If you like talking to people and have some free time on weekends this could be the perfect role for you!(CURRENT OPENINGS ON WEEKENDS)

NEW! DINOSAUR WRANGLERS

If you love Dinosaurs – we need your help! We’re looking for volunteers to be ‘Dinosaur Wranglers’ – to help give out brochures and to make sure that Vicky the Velociprator stays safe while children come over to say ‘hi’ and get a selfie. If you are an outgoing person who loves meeting new people and likes to be outdoors this role is perfect for you!
