The Washington State Historical Society partners with our communities to explore how history connects us all. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!
Partnering, Connecting, Exploring. That’s what we do.
The Washington State Historical Society has collected, preserved, and shared the stories of Washington since 1891. We are the recognized destination for Washington State History. We serve as our state’s primary history educator, making history relevant to our modern lives, and supporting history-based civic dialogue where all are welcome. Our volunteers are essential partners in that effort.
Our volunteers are valuable ambassadors of Washington’s history. Volunteers help museum visitors feel welcome and explore their connections to Washington. Volunteers spread the word in the community about our terrific programs and events. Volunteers help to make our collections accessible for research.
Your time is valuable and we appreciate the importance of finding a good fit as you consider a volunteer commitment. We might be the right place for you if:
- You’re interested in learning about history (no experience needed!)
- You like people (you do not have to be an extrovert!)

We currently do not have any upcoming volunteering opportunities. Please sign up (via My Impact) for updates as we “reboot” our volunteer program (anticipated for Fall, 2021). We are currently renovating our volunteer program to reflect new offerings at the Washington State History Museum.
