The Pratt Museum is seeking volunteers and docents for the 2015 season. Volunteering is a great way to support your community museum. Opportunities include gallery hosts, retail associates, marine gallery and Harrington Cabin hosts. If you have ever thought of volunteering in your community, this is a perfect opportunity to get involved. We hope to see you soon!

During the spring, the Pratt hosts a Volunteer Orientation to prepare for the busy summer season. The purpose of this orientation is to educate people about the many volunteer opportunities available at the Museum. Coffee, pastries, and the chance to meet and visit with Pratt staff are all part of Orientation Day. Be sure to check our calendar for the next event. We hope to see you there!
