There's nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer.


You do not have to be an expert on Lee’s Summit’s history to volunteer. There are a variety of opportunities ranging from docents and researchers to gift shop services (and more). Please reach out to us if you’d like to help.


The Lee’s Summit Museum belongs to all of us. We receive minimal local funding and no federal funding.

The museum is open specific days and hours, which are posted. Visitors are welcomed by a group of volunteer docents.

Because of individual memberships and corporate support, we are able to display various exhibitions and engage new audiences through education and outreach.
