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 Oahu, and the Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden on Hawai‘i Island. Please review the page below for Current Opportunities and Application Process.
