A “Hands-On” Way to Preserve Our Island History

Gulf Beaches Historical Museum has a large, diverse group of volunteers who participate in all aspects of the Museum.

Do you love visiting with people? Volunteers will talk with touring visitors and assist in the Gift Shop. You’ll represent the museum to the public for a friendly and inviting experience! MORE
