You don't need a naval or museum background to volunteer. We offer a wide range of volunteer experiences.
- Restoration: Do you like working with your hands? Help us restore the ship and its artifacts to the way they looked when USS Texas was on active duty in the U.S. Navy.
- Curatorial Support: Research, file, catalogue artifacts, and help install exhibits.
- Interpretation: Share the ship’s history through guided tours, demonstrations and programs.
- Special Event Support: Assist with special events.
If you don't see something that interests you, contact the ship’s volunteer coordinator at (281) 479-2431, ext. 239.
