Our Volunteer Club

Chico Museum is a volunteer-run organization. It's mission statement is to acquire, conserve, research and communicate the rich history of Chico for the education and enjoyment of the community. This is the message embraced by our team and what we wish to convey to museum guests through the dedication and contributions of our dedicated group of volunteers.

Each year, innumerable hours are dedicated to greeting museum visitors, leading tours, creating and installing exhibits, hosting receptions, building maintenance,  and countless other tasks. We are very grateful for the accomplishments our volunteers achieve.

Serving as a volunteer at the Chico Museum provides a means of sharing Chico’s history with the community and visitors to the Chico area. We hope you consider becoming one of our faithful and committed volunteers and look forward to seeing you soon.
