The Calaboose Museum is only made possible through the efforts of our local community. Whether it’s donations, memberships, volunteer docents and board members, there are many different ways to support this museum. 



Currently, the best way to donate to the Calaboose is using the donate button below or in person upon visiting us either at the museum or at one our events. As we look forward to expanding these options, you can stay up to date by subscribing to our newsletter here.

Volunteer Docents

Our docents are the front line of the daily operations of the museum. They support us by serving as museum/event staff, guiding tours, and welcoming guests as they enter the museum. If you’re interested in becoming a docent, please email us.

Board Members

The museum is sustained by a team of loyal community members who dedicate their time serving as a part of our Executive Board. Members of the board are voted in and serve two year terms in which they assist with event planning, fundraising, and curating the museum exhibits.
