Volunteer

The National Naval Aviation Museum has a volunteer staff of over 400 people, adding a very important personal touch to each visitor’s experience. Our volunteers perform myriad functions including security, restoration, special events, and hosting tours. Many volunteers have backgrounds in Naval Aviation – giving our visitors a sense of “been there, done that.” We couldn’t open our doors and provide our guests with a high quality experience without the enthusiastic commitment of our volunteers.

How to Apply

Volunteers are needed to work in all areas of the Museum! Please make an appointment to meet with our Volunteer Coordinator, Rusty Deason. He can be reached by phone at (850) 452-3604, extension 3139.

Volunteers are asked to commit at least eight (8) hours per month to maintain volunteer status in most divisions. Volunteers work independently with other volunteers and with permanent Museum staff personnel. Volunteer placement is a selective process and not all applicants are accepted into our program. Volunteers will be placed in assignments that are best matched with the applicant’s skills and the needs of the Museum. Qualified applicants will be interviewed and scheduled for an orientation session.
