Have you ever thought of volunteering? Gulf Beaches Historical Museum has a large, diverse group of volunteers who participate in all aspects of the Museum.

Do you enjoy looking at “neat old things” and learning more about them? Volunteers who work behind the scenes to help catalogue and maintain our archives carry out the function of the museum’s mission: To preserve our island history.

Do you love visiting with people? Volunteers can serve as docents, talking with touring visitors and assisting in the gift shop. You’ll represent the museum to the public for a friendly and inviting experience. We also need assistance with event planning, another area where folks with social skills – or just good organizational experience – can contribute.

Do you have computer or design skills? We need help with social media, marketing, exhibit creation, and digitizing our collection.

By contributing your time and sharing your wealth of experience the Museum will continue it’s proud tradition of being an “all volunteer operated” organization. No special skill, talent or knowledge is needed, other than an interest in our Island History. Call 727-552-1610 – leave a message with your name and contact number where you can be reached.

The rewards of volunteering are many, including the friendships you’ll make.

As a Pinellas County Volunteer you will receive special benefits, invitations and rewards for committing 6 hours a month. Training is provided at the Museum. It is our goal to place our volunteers into activities they will enjoy. We couldn’t open our doors without the help of volunteers, so if you have a little time to spare, please consider joining us!

If you are interested in becoming a part of this vital group, please contact us at 727-552-1610 or through our contact form.
