The National Museum of the United States Air Force (NMUSAF) has a dedicated team of over 550 volunteers.  The benefits of volunteering at NMUSAF are many, including:

  • An opportunity to be active and involved in your community.
  • Being part of a fun team of fellow volunteers who enjoy sharing our Museum with the public
  • Fun activities, including an annual banquet, picnic, and after-hours events.
  • Being a part of Ohio’s most exciting free attraction, the world’s largest and oldest military aviation Museum.


join us!

Our requirements are simple – Volunteers must be:

  • 18 years of age
  • Willing to work two, half-day shifts per month
  • Possessing a positive and customer focused attitude! 

Here are our specific needs:

  • Guest Experience Volunteer:  We need upbeat, positive people who have customer service skills to meet and greet volunteers in person or by answering the telephone.  These positions do not require any experience or knowledge of aviation or aircraft.  In this capacity, you will greet guests, assist them with their mobility requirements by issuing carts, strollers, or wheelchairs, and answer visitors’ questions on the telephone. 
  • Gallery Volunteers:  This is our major requirement.  An interest or background in aviation, aircraft, or the military is helpful but NOT NECESSARY.  Gallery volunteers meet and greet guests in the Museum galleries, answer questions, and provide directions to ensure each guest feels welcome.  After a certain period and completion of training, Gallery volunteers may become tour guides / Docents if desired.
  • Education Volunteers:  We need volunteers with a passion for learning and working with students of all ages to assist with our educational programs.  Education volunteers teach or assist with classes, conduct guided tours for school groups, and interact with school groups on a regular basis.

To Volunteer, click on this link.  You will receive an email with instructions.   
The first step is to complete a background check and fingerprinting.  You will then attend a volunteer orientation, scheduled monthly (usually the third Friday of the Month with quarterly third Saturday sessions). 

That’s all there is to it!  We hope to see you soon!
