Tour Guide at The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums

Platteville, Wisconsin

Are you passionate about the Driftless Area and local history and interested in sharing your enthusiasm? The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums | City of Platteville is now recruiting part-time seasonal tour guides to offer guided mine tours and great customer service in the museum store. Guides will educate and entertain participants on a one-hour adventure both underground and above ground. The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums welcome more than 10,000 visitors per year to tour the underground 1845 Bevans Lead-Zinc Mine, to ride in a 1931 mine train, and to discover the local history of the Upper Mississippi Valley mining district through exhibit galleries.

The tour season runs from May-October 2021, with both weekend and weekday hours from 10 a.m. to 5 pm. We offer flexible part-time (14-35 hours per week) schedules, a fun work environment, and a reciprocal agreement with dozens of regional attractions offering free or deeply discounted admission for museum employees and guests. Must be able to negotiate 90 steps in and out of the mine, successfully complete guide training, and pass a city-mandated background check. Starting wage is $9-$10 per hour.
