Become A Volunteer

There are Many Ways to Get Involved!

The heart and soul of the museum are volunteers. There are many opportunities available to all who wish to participate in preserving Folsom’s rich history. There are volunteer opportunities in the gift shop, as tour docents, volunteers to visit schools as part of the educational outreach program, reception volunteers and more.


Here are just a few of the ways you can help out:

  • Leading guided tours of the museums

  • Being a friendly greeter in the gift shop

  • Learning the tricks of the forge as a blacksmith

  • Researching Folsom's history

  • Helping the office stay organized

  • Spearheading outreach

If you are interested in volunteering with the Folsom Historical Society, please come by the museum for a volunteer application or email us at
