If you love to fish you might help as a tour guide, assist at fishing events, clean artifacts and motors, tend to our aquarium, etc. Are you a storyteller? What better way to use your talents than to tell some “fish stories”? If you want to meet people from all over Minnesota and beyond, become a host at the museum, greeting people and showing them around.
If general cleaning is a fit for you, we have lots of gift shop items to keep clean, not to mention our collection of artifacts. Perhaps you like to scrapbook. We have years of clippings and pictures that need to be archived in a user-friendly way. We always need help at our special events, which are great ways to be involved when it’s convenient for you. Let us know your passion and we will find a way for you to make a difference!
Check out our Events Calendar to see in advance which events you might like to plan for. When volunteering, we have a booklet for you to sign-in and sign-out so we can keep track of how many hours you are donating to the MFM. It’s that simple. Contact us today!
Monetary donations are also accepted to assist with museum operations. To make a financial donation to the Minnesota Fishing Museum you can mail a donation, call and charge a donation on your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover, stop in, or donate directly online at givemn.org.
