There are so many ways to get involved at Heritage Museum! In addition to participating in events, public hours, and general museum happenings, consider becoming a volunteer or joining one of our amazing auxiliary groups.
Volunteer programs at HMOC are active! We are excited to invite our amazing volunteers back through our gates! We very much appreciate all of the wonderful work our volunteers assist us with, we need your help!
We will continue to have COVID procedures in place. Masks must be worn at all times, temperatures will be checked upon arrival, and 6 feet of distance must be kept between volunteers/volunteer “households”. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and inquiries.

"We all feel that the past is important. It is a rich heritage, one in which we should not lose sight. These common interests, along with a desire to serve the public in a charitable pursuit, bring us together."
