Interested in volunteering?
We appreciate your interest and encourage you to check back following the current COVID-19 situation.  SBM staff is working remotely whenever possible and volunteer opportunities are limited in order to prioritize everyone's health and wellbeing during this pandemic.  Strawbery Banke Museum is continuing to monitor and follow the guidance of the CDC, the NH Department of Health and Human Services and Portsmouth’s Health Officer, and we plan to resume our normal volunteer opportunities when it is safe to do so.

The museum is in the process of creating an updated Volunteer Handbook and developing a Volunteer Orientation Program, which we anticipate implementing with all current and new volunteers at the end of the pandemic.

Thank you for your enthusiastic support for Strawbery Banke!
