Volunteers make the world go round!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the museum staff is feeling thankful to the many individuals that help the museum run – our amazing volunteers! The museum is fortunate to have a roster of dedicated volunteers who lend their time and skill to ensure our guests have an unforgettable visit. Volunteers at the museum work in many capacities, from helping with craft prep to conducting fundraisers!

Our weekend volunteers are primarily made up of local high school students who, with their already busy schedules, give their time and energy to assist with events and activities. You can see our weekend volunteers swarming around operating our Dentzel Carousel and conducting animal presentations of our critters in our Nature Walk gallery.

Another indispensable part of the museum machine is the museum guild. The guild is comprised of a group of energetic and creative ladies who come together to support educational programs by fundraising throughout the year through various events. The museum guild also runs and maintains the Fascination Station (the Museum gift shop!)

Our Target Free Sunday’s could not be possible without the help and generosity of the National Charity League and the museum volunteers who help prepare activities and crafts for hundreds of eager families out for an afternoon of fun.

Thank you volunteers for your continued support of The Children’s Museum at La Habra!

Visit the museum and share what you are thankful for on our Tree of Appreciation in our Nannie’s Travels gallery!
