Celebrating three of our volunteers who have been with the Museum since the beginning!

Please become a volunteer; No experience necessary!

The National Shell Museum could not support all of the educational and research programs we do without our amazing volunteers. In addition to learning more about the fascinating world of shells, our volunteers get many perks for offering their time and talents to the Shell Museum.


  • Shell Museum membership privileges.
  • Gift Shop discounts.
  • Professional training.
  • Social events & opportunities.
  • A chance to learn something new every day!
