There are many ways to volunteer for the Oldest House Museum

The success of Old Island Restoration Foundation and its mission relies largely on the participation of volunteers.  There’s lots of ways you can participate and all volunteers can earn free tickets to the tours, among other perks, like our Kickoff Party and end of season Volunteer Party. It’s fun too!

Over the course of each year about 100 people volunteer to help make the Oldest House Museum a special attraction in Key West. Lend us a little of your time and be a docent once a week or three times a week.

Join a committee and help plan annual events and fundraisers, prepare mailings to the membership,  deliver brochures and posters or even volunteer to docent at our annual Home Tours.
