If you're interested in history and want to get in on the ground floor of a developing museum, consider volunteering.

It took many hands to get the museum open in April, 2010, and more volunteer opportunities are opening in different areas as time goes by. Right now, we have work waiting for skilled volunteers interested in contributing to the blog, 310 Pythian Place, and help in the collections department with artifact accessioning.


A minimum commitment of three hours per week for a 3-month period is required for continuity.

Volunteer opportunities on site will be available Monday - Friday; 9:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.


• Must be age 18 or older
• Familiar with basic computer skills
• Reliable and responsible
• Able to work independently as well as with a group
• Have a genuine interest in history
• Good organizational skills


Training is provided on-the-job by the Birmingham History Center staff.

To become a volunteer, download and print the application form and mail or bring it in person to our office, 310 18th Street North,Suite 401, Birmingham, AL  35203.  The BHC office is located on the fourth floor of the Pythian Building directly across from the Lyric Theatre.
