Collier County Museums
Historical & Cultural Sites
||Collier County Museums offer a rich sampling of the people, places and events that make the area's history and heritage well worth discovering. The County offers five separate and unique museum locations, each providing a different glimpse at the many shades and sides of the area's colorful past. In addition, the museums present several special exhibitions and signature events through the year, giving you a rare opportunity to personally see and experience life on the Florida frontier.
||We offer numerous volunteer positions, ranging from: greeting visitors when they come to the museum, archiving educational materials, participating as a tour guide, helping with gardening and grounds keeping, and myriad positions at special events we have throughout the year. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator to discuss any other positions you might be interested in.

|Worker's Comp for Volunteers?:
||We are happy to document the hours that students work at the museum especially when it helps them reach the goals of their history or other departments. It is an opportunity to talk with people of other states and countries when they interact with visitors. This broadens their horizons so to speak.
||Because our museums are part of Collier County government, the student is exposed to other aspects of government and how it works. History is most often the topic of coversation between staff an visitors and different elements of our history are explored.
