Volunteer at the Museum

Support our Mission by Being a Volunteer

Volunteers create a lasting impact on the success of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The tireless commitment of all of our volunteers helps make the Museum one of the most highly regarded natural history institutions in the country. Be a part of our volunteer community and help us inspire our community’s passion for nature & science.

We are currently accepting applications for new volunteers and conducting virtual interviews. We will not be onboarding new volunteers until the fall. If you are interested in volunteering click on the appropriate application below.

Inclusivity Statement

Science helps us understand that diversity in our natural world creates strength and nurtures life. We strive to be a diverse and collaborative team – a team of people from different backgrounds, identities and experiences who are open to being inspired, challenged and changed by one another. At all levels of our organization, in every policy, action and decision, we seek to create a workplace that lives our Museum values and foster opportunity and mutual respect. We realize that we are on a continual journey toward building community, understanding, and belonging. These aspirations are critical to bringing our mission to life.
