Volunteering at Eckley Miners’ Village Museum is a family-friendly, rewarding way to connect with the past, serve your community, and become a steward of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s industrial heritage. Whether leading tours, planning special events, demonstrating traditional crafts, or interpreting our 100-acre open-air museum for diverse audiences, volunteers are indispensable members of the Eckley family.

Current volunteer opportunities at Eckley include:

  • Leading guided tours
  • Planning special events
  • Demonstrating traditional crafts
  • Fundraising
  • Marketing

Our volunteers hail from all backgrounds and contribute from one day a year to several hours each week. If you have a special skill to share, a passion for history, or a desire to learn something new, please join us. After all: it takes a village!
