Testimonials from past Museum staff

What is it like to work and volunteer at the Museum?

"There is always something new: new groups for tours, new people, new questions. I really like seeing the visitors' reactions to the exhibits. The kids get so excited to see and learn about all of the animals. I also get to work with an awesome and supportive staff. It truly is a hidden gem in the library." -Brianna

"I've worked a lot of jobs on campus, but working at the Museum has been my favorite. You work in a relaxed setting with great people, you are able to do homework while you are working, and it doesn't feel like a job. I also got to gain extra experience with the Director by working on fossil restoration, exhibit repairs, taxidermy repairs, archaeological site testing, and rewiring the T. rex skull. This job is great for people that are passionate about nature and natural history." -Conner
