The museum is always on the lookout for individuals who are interested in the history of Assateague and Chincoteague Island and who have time to volunteer their help. Volunteers carry on the work at the museum by meeting and greeting visitors, serving as program assistants or docents, helping to manage our collection of objects and artifacts and planning our exhibits.

Object Loans & Donations

Another way to help preserve the history of Virginia’s Chincoteague Island is by donating or lending items of historical island significance to the museum’s collection. Donations of objects and artifacts are acknowledged in writing for tax purposes.
