Volunteer Opportunities

Looking to make a difference in your community? Volunteers are vital to the Brick Store Museum’s year-round mission to make personal connections to local history, art and culture through a variety of avenues that are essential to community learning.
Each year, more than 100 volunteers of all ages bring their skills, perspectives,
and life experiences to enrich our activities. Through their efforts, the Brick Store Museum
is able to provide exceptional programs and events that reach our visitors year-round.

While some volunteers maintain a regular schedule each week to work on ongoing projects, others prefer helping out as needed with specific events or activities.

    • Lead walking tours of Kennebunk’s historic district and Kennebunk Beach (seasonal – see below)

Specific Need: Walking Tour Guides!

The Brick Store Museum seeks interested volunteers to take part in its robust walking tour program, which offers two separate historical walks on a regular basis during the summer months. Visitors are invited to join either the Historic District Walking Tour or the Kennebunk Beach Walking Tour weekly, to learn more about the people and places of the Kennebunks.

The Historic District Tours are offered every Friday at 11:00am, plus tours by appointment.

Kennebunk Beach Tours are offered every Thursday at 2:00pm, or by appointment.

The tours run from July through mid-September. Both tours last about 60-90 minutes, and cover less than a mile on flat road. Guides are given a notebook with a script, and images to accompany the tour. If you like talking with people and sharing our area’s history – this is the opportunity for you!

Call (207)985-4802 or email [email protected] to take part today!
