As a Friend of the Sutliff Museum

The Sutliff Museum offers a variety of volunteer opportunities through our Friends of the Sutliff Museum such as: baking or working at special events, preparing bulk mailings, being a docent, and assisting with research and collection projects.

Becoming a Friend is a great way to meet interesting people and make new friends. It is also a lot of fun! If you like interacting with people and enjoy the Victorian Era and history, then consider becoming a Friend of the Sutliff Museum. You may volunteer as little as once or twice a year or you may prefer working as often as weekly. Volunteer interests usually determine the frequency of individual work schedules. A volunteer appreciation event is held annually for our volunteers. During the program, special gifts are presented to each volunteer.
