What is Your Passion?

Unique historic architecture? Gardening on a grand scale? Local history? Decorative arts and antiques? 

Rockwood Museum and Park has the volunteer opportunity for you! 

• Be a costumed tour guide 
• Help set up special exhibits 
• Research the collection and archival records 
• Garden in the formal garden and surrounding 72 acres.

Interested? Please email your resume, contact information, and a short cover letter explaining your interest to Rockwood volunteer coordinator, Kristen Roberts, at kmroberts@nddde.org or call (302) 761-1722 for more information or to set up a meeting.

Volunteering at Rockwood Museum has great benefits!

  • A rare opportunity to work closely with museum objects and to lend a hand in setting up special ongoing exhibits in the museum.
  • Free admission to museum for volunteer and guest.
  • Educational sessions about interpreting the museum and other aspects of the collection and local history.
  • Volunteer discounts on items purchased in the museum gift shop.
  • Field trips provided quarterly to other museums for continuing education and socializing with other Rockwood Museum volunteers.
  • Yearly appreciation dinner for all museum volunteers.

Volunteer schedules are flexible. All guides serve a minimum of two 3-hour shifts per month…but typically guides fall in love with Rockwood and choose to serve more often! 

There is also one volunteer meeting per month and occasional training sessions.
