Volunteers work as many days as they wish, from one day a month to one or two days a week. A minimum of two volunteers are required for the museum to open on any day to the public.
Special events are staffed by asking for volunteers.
Volunteers arrive by subway, streetcar or train at their own expense. There is no parking at the church.
Volunteers may work independently at the museum on other days and times for tasks that they wish to do, such as research, improving displays, and entering new artifacts onto this web site.
Some data entry and research can be done on-line from your home with periodic visits to the museum to pick up or return materials.
