Volunteer opportunities abound at the Baltimore Museum of Industry for people looking to get involved. We need people with the following skill sets: 


Do you have light construction skills that can be put to use fabricating exhibits, building displays, doing electrical work, etc.? Repair projects abound in our 1865 building. 

Clerical skills

We’re always looking for people with office experience to help with mailing projects, filing, and general clerical work.

Events know-how

Our fundraisers help support our education programs, exhibitions and collections, but they take a ton of hands to do them right. Join our silent auction committee or be a part of the set up committee to help us pull off our fundraising events successfully.

Tug crew

The 1906 Steam Tug Baltimore has a great group of volunteers who help keep her ship shape. Join them and help care for one of the last remaining steam tugs on the east coast, and a national historic landmark. Learn more about volunteering with the tug Baltimore.


Assist us in the management and care of the collections. Projects may include working with object, archive, library, or photograph collections. Learn more about volunteer and internship opportunities with the collection.
