Volunteer opportunities at Arizona Capitol Museum
Ambassadors needed for busy fall season

PHOENIX – The Arizona Capitol Museum is accepting applications for volunteers in the Fall Ambassador program. As an ambassador, volunteers will interact with people from all over the world, sharing enthusiasm for Arizona and the Museum. No experience is needed, just a friendly disposition, and an interest in all things Arizona. Training is provided by the Museum.

“Volunteers are the backbone of our programs at the Arizona Capitol Museum,” said Volunteer Coordinator Abby Schmidt. “With an upcoming election and the busy fall season approaching we need additional volunteers who can help achieve our mission to connect people to Arizona’s government, past and present.”

Applications are available online at and are due to the Museum by August 15, 2014. Training begins September 2.

The Arizona Capitol Museum uses a balance of technology, hands-on activities, historical artifacts, and public programs to help visitors learn about and interact with the government of the 48th State. Visitors to the Arizona Capitol can:

  • Trace Arizona government from territorial times to statehood, and on to present day.
  • Learn how the Arizona Constitution continues to drive our state government.
  • Discover the effects World War II had on Arizona and its growth and view artifacts from the USS Arizona.
  • Explore the Capitol and Wesley Bolin Plaza monuments.

Admission and parking at the museum are free. The Museum is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In September, the Museum begins Saturday hours; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday hours run through May.
