Volunteer & Internship

Benefits of Volunteering at AHS

AHS volunteers benefit from their experiences in many ways. They experience Arizona history, develop new skills, and contribute to their community. Active volunteers also receive a 10% discount at museum stores and free admission to the museums. Volunteers also enjoy the camaraderie on field trips, history presentations, and social events.


Kid friendly personalities are needed to lead tours and visit schools. Share your passion for Arizona history with generations to come.

If you prefer behind the scenes activities and delving into history, volunteers are also needed to work with our collections, at our front desk, museum stores, and for general administrative assistance.
