Our Volunteers ... Are Special People

All of the operations and activities of the Alvin Museum Society are done by volunteers. These workers devote much time to seeing that the Alvin Historical Museum and the Marguerite House Museum continue to provide a meaningful opportunity to experience the history of our community. Along with the maintenance and operation of these facilities, the Museum Society assists in research, provides programs for community groups and participates in civic activities. These diverse activities provide a volunteer opportunity for everyone. We invite you to become a part of our "special" group.
