Become a Volunteer
Fort Crook Museum is managed entirely by volunteers and they are the heart of our work. We invite you to join us in any capacity, large or small. The volunteers time and energy is what makes our work move forward and expand.
We have several completed and ongoing projects as well as new projects we would like to get started.

The museum is in the process of applying for a grant to build a shed to cover some of the wagons and old farm machinery that are either in the Round Barn or outside exposed to the elements. If approved the grant will only cover part of the cost and the Historical Society is expected to contribute some labor, materials and money. Please contact the museum if you can help with any of these items.
Volunteers, led by Tom Ricker, are working on restoring the many wagons, carts and buggies on display at the museum. Click below to see before and after photos and to find out how to help with this project. This is a great opportunity to learn how these wagons are constructed and how they were used.
The workshops have been canceled for this year. If you are interested, please contact the museum.
During the winter months Ron Shannon leads a blacksmith workshop. These are held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday from November through April from noon to 4:00pm in the blacksmith shop at the back of the red barn at the museum. Everybody is welcome regardless of their level of experience. This is a great opportunity to learn a valuable skill.
