Thank you for your interest in volunteering at The National D-Day Museum.
Volunteers are an essential part of our Museum.
They represent the Museum to our visitors and keep things running smoothly.
Volunteering at our Museum gives you the opportunity
to learn more about WWII and D-Day history, to meet and befriend people with similar
interests, and to serve this city's newest educational institution.
Enclosed is a list of Volunteer opportunities.
If you are interested, please fill out the enclosed application form and return it to me at the
Museum. I will contact you to set up an interview.
Thanks!
