National Canal Museum - Volunteering

Lend A Helping Hand

The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor and National Canal Museum welcome volunteers who share our mission of preserving the history and culture of 19th-century canal life and interpreting it to students, families and adults. Volunteers can become museum guides, gift shop attendees, field trip docents, interpreters or gardeners at the locktender’s house, and program leaders for children’s activities at the museum. We also welcome volunteers who are interested in cataloguing and digitizing archival items and conducting interpretive programs on the D&L Trail in Hugh Moore Park, including nature walks and geocaching.

We provide a complete training program prior to the June 2 opening of the museum. Museum guides choose shifts that are available from Wednesday through Sunday during the museum season.

To volunteer, call Brian Greene at 610-923-3548 x234 or email Brian at You also can use our volunteering form to reach out to us.
