Staff, Auxiliary, and Volunteering

The National Balloon Museum is operated entirely by volunteers.  This offers many unique experiences for those who wish to volunteer or who need to fullfill a volunteer requirement.  Our volunteer experiences are available year round and on both weekends and weekdays.  Training is offered.  Some examples of the opportunities are as follows:

Special Events
National Balloon Classic
Hall of Fame Ceremony

Museum Greeting
Tour Guides
Audio/Video Technician
Grounds Maintenance
Gift Shop

If you are unable to volunteer at the museum due to distance or physical limitations, we do have opportunities that can be performed off site (from home).
