Fort Bend Museum volunteer opportunities

The Fort Bend Museum preserves the history of Fort Bend County and surrounding areas located in Richmond, Texas. They are looking for volunteers to give historic house tours, to volunteer for the Texian Market Days event in October, and other special events.

Historic House Tour Volunteers

The museum does not have volunteer projects every weekend, only as they arise, but they are always accepting new volunteers. From Tuesday to Saturday, there are historic house tours of the Long-Smith Cottage and the Moore Mansion at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Potential volunteers might be interested in learning to give these historic tours. Weekend volunteers generally will be giving house tours, helping at the front desk, or helping with projects that arise around the museum. The museum is flexible with the volunteer’s schedule.

Texian Market Days in October

Texian Market Days is a community event at George Ranch Historical Park, held by the Fort Bend Museum Association. The event always welcome volunteers to help.Volunteers are needed in general at the event, with volunteer opportunities ranging from running the ticket booth to being a re-enactor.  This year the event is held on Saturday, October 26, 2019.

Other Special Events

For those who become regular volunteers at the museum, they may be recruited to be a part of volunteer teams for certain special events we hold, like Playing in the Past, A Southern Garden Party, Lone Star Stomp, etc.
