Volunteer with us

Ever thought about volunteering?

Volunteering with us is a great way to engage with Revelstoke's heritage and meet other people who share a love of local history, the Canadian Pacific Railway, and trains. We offer a variety of roles for you to participate in many different ways.

​Our volunteers have the flexibility to schedule themselves for a wide variety of volunteer roles, each of which provides vital support to a different aspect of museum operations. The Revelstoke Railways Museum recognizes that as a volunteer you give your time, abilities and enthusiasm freely to help us and we appreciate this significant support.

 

As a volunteer, you will have a wonderful time as a valuable part of our team that strives to create a welcoming environment for our many visitors. In return, we hope to give you an opportunity to explore our collections, to learn new things, and to share your skills and interests!
