Opportunities at the Craftsmanship Museum

The museum is open Tuesday thru Saturday and closed on holidays. When we get busy with visitors, having adequate personnel present to help museum guests is very important. We are always looking for friendly volunteers to act as hosts, docents, or to work in the machine shop.

It's a great place to spend some time
If you have some extra time and would like to spend it hosting visitors at the Craftsmanship Museum or working in the machine shop, please give us a call or stop by for a visit.

You can reach the museum curator, Terry Miller, at 760-727-9492 Tuesday thru Saturday from 9AM to 4PM. You can also e-mail Terry at terry@craftsmanshipmuseum.com

Docents / Hosts
Museum volunteers act as hosts and docents, showing visitors around the display area and explaining the exhibits. A background in metalworking, miniature engineering, or model making is helpful but not required. Many of our volunteers come from other non-technical backgrounds and find the subject matter at the museum interesting and talking with our visitors stimulating and rewarding. The museum employs a general manager and master craftsman to man the Foundation's museum and machine shop.

Machinists, Skilled Craftsmen
The machine shop is manned by our master machinist but we invite others to help with our ongoing projects on a volunteer basis. Projects built in the museum shop become part of the museum display or are made available to museum guests for a donation.

If you enjoy talking to fellow machinists, model makers and craftsmen, the museum machine shop is a great place to spend a little time.
