The National Museum of the United States Army is now accepting applications for its volunteer program.

The museum, which is under construction at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, is scheduled to open in 2020. The first volunteers will be selected this summer in preparation for the museum’s opening.

“We want our volunteers to reflect the diversity of the Army and our expected visitors,” said Tammy Call, the museum’s director. “Our volunteer opportunities will complement our daily operations and there is a spot for you as a volunteer.”

The museum is seeking volunteers for a variety of roles, including visitor services, special events, tours, education, gardening and administration.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old. Those selected as volunteers will be matched to roles based on skills and interests shared during the application process, and they can choose their preferred shifts.

The museum, which will be open seven days a week, 364 days a year, expects to attract more than 750,000 visitors a year.
