I worked at Academy of Natural Sciences part-time (More than a year)
Free access to museums events
Connections to other museums
Open on certain Holidays when no one comes out of the house
Museum can get slow at times
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Academy of Natural Sciences.
They have you fill out a form online listing any accolades and also why you want to work there or why you think you would be a good fit for the volunteer program. They then will review your application and they will have someone in charge email you back if you have been accepted for interview. The interview is usually at a time of your choosing in the museum and its much of the same material gone over in the online app. If you are accepted, the head of the program will email you and you can work out a schedule.
