The Coulterville Museum is only as strong as its Volunteers!  The NMCHC was founded by a dedicated group of volunteers, some of whom remain active. The entire museum is run by its Volunteers!

New Docents Always Welcome!

If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming a docent, contact the museum at 209.878.3015. The commitment is for only 3 hours a month and you receive many benefits including getting to know a great group of dedicated volunteers and learning more about the history of our unique sliver of the west.

In March, the group will travel to the Amador County Museum in Jackson to visit their local museum, followed by a picnic lunch on the museum grounds, weather permitting. There is always so much to learn by observing others and we always bring back new ideas after one of our outings.

Our goal has been to ensure the museum was always open during its advertised hours and it is because of this dedicated group of wonderful volunteers we’ve met this goal for the second consecutive year. We hope you will join us!
