The museum is looking for volunteers to serve as tour guides and guest service representatives. Scheduling is flexible and no extensive knowledge of Civil War naval history is necessary. Training will be provided. Attend a meet-up and see if this is a good fit for you.

We need your help to complete our newest permanent exhibit. This exhibit will tell the story of the people, industry, and events that defined Columbus and the Chattahoochee Valley during the most important era of our nation’s history.
