"National Volunteer Month"
Become a member or volunteer
  — at the Museum

Why not become a supporting member of Kittery's museum? Even better, think about volunteering. Being a volunteer is easy... and it's free. The time commitment is up to you. Our crew is friendly and loves to talk history, so call or email soon.

One possibility, for a few hours a week, is to staff the Museum when it's open. Last year, we were visited by almost a thousand people, from 43 U.S. states and 10 foreign countries! We helped them to learn just a little about Kittery.

Another possibility — with varying time commitment — is to apply for a special project. We can use your acquired experience, skill or knowledge. Want to engage with Kittery history... or help a local non-profit organization? Please tell us!

Aren't you due for a visit to the Museum?



Tuesday, May 1 — from 5:00 to 6:30 pm
