Volunteers have been making a difference at MPM long before it opened its doors in 1884.

Today, MPM's corps of more than 300 volunteers log thousands of hours each year engaging directly with the public. Volunteers take on endeavors such as staffing our "stop spot" carts, interpreting exhibits, running films in the Nickelodeon silent-film theater, engaging children as a member of our Bug Patrol, and some earning docent status.
