Museum Volunteers

 

RIP Picture

It was with considerable sadness that the Logan City Museum learned of the recent passing of one of our past members. Norma Jean Johns passed away peacefully on the 13th June 2017 at the age of 73. Norma was a valued volunteer and member of the Museum and at one stage she capably performed the role of Treasurer of our Society. All the members of the Museum would like to extend our sincere sympathies and commiserations to all the members of Norma’s family.

Volunteers are a very important part of museums. Volunteers contribute significantly to enhancing the experiences we can offer our visitors.

Museums volunteers help to deliver a fantastic range of exciting and memorable public programs as well as assisting curators and collection staff behind the scenes.

Why volunteer?

People choose to become volunteers for a number of reasons, including:

  • Sharing their talents with museum visitors and staff
  • Gaining experience for a future career in museums or another relevant area
  • Developing new skills
  • Experiencing new things
  • Meeting interesting people

Who volunteers?

Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds, they include students, retirees, full-time and part-time workers, parents and job seekers.

Welcome to Anna Freeman i-love-volunteering

Anna is very interested in local history and as there is no better place to improve one’s local knowledge than by visiting or volunteering at a historical museum, like the  Logan City Historical Society Museum located in the old Kingston Buttery Factory, this is why Anna decided to become a volunteer.

Anna loves reading and amongst her favorites are non-fictional, historical fiction, the 19th Century era, and classical books.

In her spare time, Anna likes to potter around her vegetable garden, knit and do drawings.
