Volunteering at the Museum
Volunteers are a vital part of accomplishing our mission at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum. Volunteers currently serve in most areas of the Museum’s two facilities: the Main Campus in Kalihi on the island of O‘ahu, and the Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden on Hawai‘i Island. To register as a volunteer, you will need to submit a completed Volunteer Application, Waiver and Background Check Form. Background checks are an important step in ensuring the safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers and collections.
