We welcome and depend on volunteers of all types to support Poulsbo Historical Society and its museum venues. Most volunteers commit to a weekly morning or afternoon shift.

Volunteering for a historical society offers many interesting opportunities to:

  • Meet visitors from your own neighborhood and from around the world
  • Enjoy the camaraderie of fellow volunteers
  • Share your skills to benefit of your community
Greeters welcome guests, and perform other duties as appropriate.  Each museum has its own unique ambiance to explore.  Possible activities include:
  • Maritime Museum – serve as cashier for the museum gift shop.
  • Archive & Research Center – assist a visitor in pursuing historical research.
  • Martinson Cabin – during a lull on a warm day, putter in the garden!
  • Heritage Museum – demonstrate the Regina Music Box and other interesting interactive historical exhibits.
Always something to do!
Unless otherwise noted, hours are
Mornings 11 AM – 1 PM (11 AM – 1:30 PM summers)
Afternoons 1 – 4 PM (1:30 – 5 PM summers)

  • Heritage Museum: Monday AND Wednesday mornings.
  • Maritime Museum Librarian: We are searching for a volunteer with some library experience (or willingness to learn basic skills) to oversee the small Maritime Library. Work includes tracking the check-in/check-out of books, “reading” the shelves to keep things organized, and processing new books as they are accepted. Set your own schedule.
  • Video Editor to edit videos of historical programs and interviews for posting on the PHS website (could be done from home).
  • Transcriber to listen to and type up oral interviews (could be done from home).
