BECOME A VOLUNTEER AT THE MUSEUM
Do you like conversing with other individuals?
Do you have an interest in military heritage?
If the answer to either question is yes, we invite you to consider joining our ranks as a volunteer at the Oregon Coast Military Museum! Opened in July 2015, after a seven-year effort to honor over 20% of Florence area residents who are veterans. We are looking for volunteers who can work in the gift shop, admission desk, or in the display area as a docent assisting visitors as they wander through the displays.
With additional volunteers we would be able to open our doors more days each week. Hours scheduled are flexible with your availability. Please stop by during our open hours and meet our Operations Manager, Mr. Geoff Cannon. We look forward to meeting you!
Guest services provides the initial welcome to our visitors, helping guests navigate through the museum, assisting the ticket counter, assisting the Museum gift shop when needed, and helping with the preparation and execution of special museum events. If you like giving tours volunteer to become a docent.
