VolunteerVolunteers are fully immersed in the Museum experience as an integral part of our team, serving as ambassadors to the community. If you are 18 or older with the desire to become more involved with the Museum, and have the positive energy, flexibility, and customer service skills we need, we would love to have you join our team.

Visitor Experience volunteers work in the Museum with the public.  They greet and direct visitors, sell admission tickets and memberships, assist in the library and coat check areas, and help in the gift shop. For information on becoming a Visitor Services volunteer, please call 847.967.4864 or email volunteer@ilhmec.org.
