Volunteer & Internship Opportunities

The National Museum of Civil War Medicine is the premier center for the preservation and research of the legacy of Civil War Medical innovation and humanitarianism. As a living institution, we utilize artifacts, storytelling and the historic lessons derived from that era to educate the public and define the impact on today’s society. We invite you to take part in preserving history through our volunteer and internship opportunities.

M.V.P.’s (Museum Volunteer Program)

Volunteers partake in numerous activities such as guiding tours of the Museum’s, lectures, programs, workshops, living history and community events. Additionally, volunteers assist with Museum research, aid in the transcription and archival processes. The M.V.P.’s directly ensure that the legacy of Civil War Medicine lives on. The Volunteers at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine are truly the life blood of our organization. Currently the NMCWM has 55 volunteers who donate their time and talents to help the Museum to fulfill its mission.

Currently, The National Museum of Civil War Medicine, Pry House Field Hospital Museum and Clara Barton’s Missing Soldiers Office, opening in late 2013 are seeking compassionate, energetic members of our community to take part in the Museum Volunteer Program. With the support of our Volunteers the Museum is able to focus on in-depth interpretation, educational programming, and expansion.
