The volunteers of History Colorado are an important and dedicated group crucial to our operations. Volunteers play an important role in helping to tell Colorado’s story. Whether it’s greeting visitors at one of our many Community Museums, working behind the scenes of a new exhibit at the History Colorado Center, or inspiring school kids to explore our state's history, we have a variety of opportunities to use your special skills to bring Colorado’s history to life.
