Weekday Building Guides work primarily with the over 25,000 school children
that visit our museum every year. Weekday building guides are volunteers willing

and information with bright young minds.

are many different buildings to choose from, including six different houses, the
church, school, railroad depot, hotel, Doctor’s Office and Main Street buildings.
Building guides will also have lots of opportunities to expand their historical
Special Event Volunteers help with our monthly events, assisting with
craft projects or helping staff with demonstrations and activities. Special
event volunteers frequently interact with families as they experience the
museum. No minimum commitment or advanced training is required for
special events. This is a great way to get your group or organization
involved with DHV!
Special Talent/Living History Volunteers have a unique talent
or skill to share with Dallas Heritage Village and our visitors. We’re
looking for seamstresses, gardeners, musicians, and crafty people, but the
possibilities are limitless. Let us know what you have to offer, and we’ll find
a place for you.
Curatorial Volunteers help care for the collection. Inventory, light cleaning
and data entry are ongoing tasks necessary for the caring of Museum artifacts. Curatorial
volunteers are trained and scheduled by the Curator of Exhibits and Collections and work during
weekday office hours. Please contact Evelyn Montgomery directly if this interests
you (214-413-3666 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
