Volunteering at the Pabst Mansion is a great way to meet new people, learn more about the history of Milwaukee, share your skills and experiences with others and most importantly... have FUN! As a new volunteer you will be asked to attend a general orientation and training sessions which will help match your skills and interests to one of the following areas:
Tour Guide (Docent): Our tour guides are our link to the public. As a tour guide, you will provide the visitor with a history of the Mansion and the Pabst family.
Usher: Love history but not ready to give your own tour? Ushers help organize groups and trail tours to keep the flow moving. Ushers also act as greeters during our holiday season, letting guests know the house rules and handing out self guide literature. Needing only minimal training, ushers are a great way to get involved in our beautiful museum!
Visitor Services: Visitor service volunteers are our visitor’s first and last impression of the Mansion. Responsibilities for this position include greeting visitors, admissions, and assisting with sales in the gift shop.
Programming: There are a variety of ways to volunteer "behind-the-scenes." Volunteers are needed to help with special events, education, gardening, and outreach.
Volunteering at the Pabst Mansion is an enriching and rewarding experience. In order to show our appreciation we provide the following benefits:
• 10% discount in our gift shop.
• Discount admission to Pabst Mansion events.
• Free membership after 100 hours of service.
• Special volunteer activities including an annual Christmas party, exclusive tours of historic Milwaukee sites, and volunteer recognition night
The Pabst Mansion Volunteer Council was established to guide volunteer development, act as stewards of the museum, and play an active role in fundraising for restoration projects and volunteer activities. The Council hosts an ongoing series of unique events exclusive to the volunteers.
