Our Mission: The museum creates meaningful opportunities to learn, reflect and have fun through hands-on and collections-based explorations in science and culture.
There are many ways to help the Museum achieve its mission. You can:
Volunteers are vital! We count on our many dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to help us with many aspects of work at FCMoD. They work in concert with staff members to support the museum’s mission and provide learning experiences for our visitors. The benefits of volunteering include:
- Meeting new people
- Developing new skills
- Providing learning opportunities
- Being involved in your community
- Participating "behind the scenes"
- Access to volunteer enrichment programs
If you are interested in volunteering at FCMoD, please see the Volunteer page. We couldn’t open our doors without the help of our volunteers!
