Friends and Volunteers

The Bloomington Historical Society functions under the direction of professional unpaid Staff who handled administrative duties and with the assistance of dedicated volunteers who assist in a variety of ways. Volunteers assist with hosting the museum public hours approximately 20 hours per week. History Interpreters give guided tours of the museum to visitors from the local community as well as state, national and foreign visitors, as evidenced by our guest book! Tours are given to Bloomington elementary school 'Students to the Museum and the Museum to the Schools' program. Volunteers assist with archiving, special events, exhibits and more.
