“You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world… but it requires people to make the dream a reality.” Walt Disney

Every day volunteers and interns help make the Children’s Discovery Museum “the most wonderful place in the world”. Volunteers spend their time interacting and playing with our visitors, help keep the museum tidy, lead free programming and assist with education classes in and out of the museum!
