Volunteers Are Key!

Without the dedication of our faithful volunteers, the Sheldon Museum and Cultural Center would not be able to operate half as well as it does. Thank you for all the hard work through the years, and in advance for all the years to come!

Like most non-profit organization, the Sheldon Museum operates on a tight budget. Volunteers make all the difference!

Interested in Volunteering?

We have many projects for volunteers: working the reception or store, scanning photographs, identifying photographs, digitizing and transcribing oral histories, archival work, research, gardening and grounds, and painting and building projects or helping with special events such as the Museum's fair booth, Doll Fair or Wednesday Walks--to name just a few.

We're happy to work with your schedule and make it a rewarding experience for all!

Please email or call the Museum's Volunteer Coordinator Kris Reeves at (907)766-2366.

Do you have a Treasure of the Chilkat Valley?

The Sheldon Museum’s mission is to preserve the history of the Chilkat Valley. In doing so, we are interested in photographs, artifacts, letters, diaries and other items relevant to our valley. If you have any of these and would be willing to donate or bequeath them to the Museum, please contact us. To a historical museum, the value of an object is based on its history or provenance. A pile of old papers may be a treasure trove!

Note: scanned images must be 300dpi or higher.
