We pride ourselves on the diversity of backgrounds making up our volunteer family. Anyone with a passion for learning and sharing knowledge is welcome! 


We are looking for outgoing volunteers who are interested in creating an engaging educational atmosphere for all who come through the museum. Volunteers will lead tours that bring to life the history of science and medicine in Indiana (and how it impacts the here and now) by exploring the unique Pathology Building and the efforts of the doctors who worked there. 

Time Commitment and Training: Docents are asked to commit regularly  and come in at least twice a month for full or partial days.

Our volunteers work during our open hours: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10-4 and occasionally for special tours and events. Those interested in volunteering on Wednesdays should message mmauer@imhm.org for more details after completing the online application.  

Training for the position  requires you to learn a sizable amount of historical information, follow tours, and more. All materials will be provided!  

Qualifications: All docents must be 18 or older. The tours cover two floors and last an hour or more - if you have limited mobility and cannot climb stairs or stand for long periods of time, please check out our Greeter Position! 

In addition to giving tours, there may also be opportunities to work on projects related to collections, cataloging, and/or clerical work.

Visitor Services Assistant (Greeter)

Greeter training will be done in house and he/she receive the same resource materials as the docents for personal interest and education! 

Qualifications: You must be 18 or older. The physical demands for this position are low and it is open to those with limited mobility. This position does require an ability to perform simple functions on a iPad (or a willingness to learn).
