If the idea of Volunteering at one of Oregon’s oldest history museums right here in The Dalles is something that you have thought about, here’s your chance to help us! We are looking for Volunteers who  have a few hours a week or a month or even occasionally during the year who would be willing to help out at the museum.

All you need is the time.  We will provide the training in how the museum operates, information on our history, etc.

New Volunteers will be matched with our more experienced Volunteers so that you won’t be on your own in the beginning so you’ll feel comfortable.

If you are interested in Volunteering, please contact the museum by phone or stop by during museum hours. We’d love to speak with you.
