Volunteer Program

Our volunteers are the beating heart of the Museum’s workforce. Both on the floor and behind the scenes, these passionate, generous and skilled individuals contribute to a museum that fosters connection, curiosity and the unexpected. The Museum is alive with objects, stories and experiences waiting for you to get involved.

By volunteering at MAAS you will share your passion, feed your mind, expand your personal horizons and connect to your community. Some say that volunteering helps us live longer and research reveals that those who volunteer are definitely happier.

The Powerhouse is unique in that the volunteers here are all as different and eclectic – young, old, engineers, historians, grandmothers, parents, students – as the museum itself, but held together by a sheer kindness of spirit and deep love of the Powerhouse.
