The Fort Snelling Military Museum Volunteers help restore, maintain, and operate at various special events the Museum's equipment, under the supervision of the U.S. Army Reserve 88th Regional Readiness Command.

To our knowledge, no other Volunteer group in the U.S. is allowed to work with operational military vehicles.

If you like what you see, and would like to work on this rare equipment or volunteer your time, the Volunteers need you!

We meet at 8:00 a.m. on the second Saturday and Sunday of each month at the Museum to work on the vehicles.

Membership in the Volunteers is open to the public by application, subject to a successful background check. You can print our Application and Individual Background Check Form  and mail it to the Museum with your check.  Upon completion of the background check by Fort Snelling Security Personnel, your check will be processed and you will be notified that your membership has become effective.

For other questions about volunteering, call:

See you there!
