Volunteers & Interns


We are in need of volunteers to act as Docents (Tour Guides) who are interested in the history of Ocean City. It is a rewarding volunteer position – you get to converse with a myriad of personalities. You learn from the visitors as they are learning from you. Every day is different in the museum. Our volunteers are a very caring group of people. Some of the volunteers donate their time once a week, once every two weeks, once a month – it is up to you. Also, we have the exciting exhibits and the summer Thursday night lecture series. Please stop by or call us.

The Ocean City Historical Museum offers two internships – Curatorial and Museum Education. Both are available during the summer or school year and are unpaid. Intern duties and projects may be designed based on the intern’s academic needs. The intern’s schedule and hours are flexible and will be set by the Curator and intern prior to the start of the internship. All academic disciplines are welcome and no formal experience required. Training will be provided. An interest in history, non-profit organizations, working with the public and education in an informal learning setting are required. Must be friendly and able to work independently.
