Being a volunteer at the William S. Hart Museum opened up a world of opportunities

-Hart Volunteer

  • Museum Tour Volunteers guide the public through the house engaging visitors with the story of William S Hart, his legacy, and personal collections which all tell the story of the Old American West.
  • Education Outreach Volunteers bring our museum to the community. The Hart Museum partners with Santa Clarita Valley elementary schools to bring hands-on education programs into the classroom. 
  • Gift Store Volunteers support the Trading Post, the Friends of Hart Park Gift Store. They not only facilitate sales of the shop's merchandise, but also act as ambassadors to the park and museum by assisting visitors with way-finding and planning their day.
  • Special Events Volunteers also assist with special programs, projects, and events as needed.

Get involved today! Here's how you get started

  • Submit an application for the museum of your choice (must be 16 years or older to apply)
  • Attend volunteer orientation and complete background check
  • Commit to a weekly shift that fits within your schedule
  • Start working with our guests and collections
