Volunteer at Heritage Village!

Volunteers play a vital role in the Museum’s success, contributing to operations and programs. Our volunteers dedicate their time and talents to a diverse array of areas including events and educational programs; historic preservation; grounds maintenance; collections care; and more! Explore our latest volunteer opportunities today.


At Heritage Village, every task is important! With over 20 structures on-site, each needs to be opened in the morning and closed in the afternoon. Join us in ensuring these buildings are accessible to guests during the day and secure at night. Volunteers have the option to select either an opening or closing shift, allowing them to enjoy a 40-minute walk through the park while fulfilling their volunteer hours.

Collections Care

Heritage Village serves as the primary repository for Pinellas County History. Within the Heritage Village collection and archive are 20,000 pieces of material culture along with numerous historic maps, photographs, postcards, scrapbooks, yearbooks, and other significant artifacts. Collaborate closely with our Curator of Collections and Archivist to contribute to the preservation of Pinellas County History.


Heritage Village demonstrators bring history to life by showcasing old-world crafts such as weaving, knitting, and blacksmithing. You can also share your own unique skills with the community.

Gift Shop/Welcome Desk
