St. Catharines Museum & Welland Canal Centre - 1932 Welland Canals Pkwy.

 The St. Catharines Museum has a variety of volunteer opportunities, including tour guides and assisting with museum collections.

 As a tour guide you can share your enthusiasm about St. Catharines with visitors from around the world. Volunteers give informative tours about the four Welland Canals and the early days of St. Catharines. Training is provided by qualified museum staff.

As a volunteer with the museum's collections and registration department, you will be involved in one of the central functions done behind the scenes in a museum: Cataloguing. Artifacts and documents are catalogued and preserved for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of St. Catharines citizens and visitors. At the St. Catharines Museum, a dedicated team of staff and volunteers carry out cataloguing, digital photography and data entry. Volunteer opportunities in the Museum's Collections department are limited at the present time.
