The New Haven Museum is looking for 2-3 volunteers for the Museum’s table at CT Folk Festival & Green Expo at Edgerton Park on September 12th, 11 am – 5 pm (usually volunteers are there for a couple of hours). Volunteers will be participating in craft activities and letting people know about the Museum. The craft activities aren’t too difficult and adults usually have a ton of fun doing them!
Also, the museum is looking for volunteers for Smithsonian magazine’s “Museum Day Live” at the New Haven Museum. Activities include the New Haven Dig boxes (which are like mini-archaeological boxes) that allow participants to find objects and report their findings, a dress-up station with photo-frame and then also creating their own Nine Man Morris game to take home. The latter is combination of chess and checkers that was played in the colonial era (great strategy game). This event is only from 12 – 5 pm on September 26th.
