Miners Hall is just 1 of 6 museums in Kansas to host the exhibit. 1,000 visitors have already signed up to tour the exhibit. Smithsonian directors say they are in major need of volunteers to make sure everything runs smoothly.
"We probably just couldn't do that traveling exhibit without volunteers because the cleanup alone is high volume, plus, there are people who are going to want to know more about the exhibit," said Debby Close, Smithsonian Co-Chair.
Volunteers can do anything from giving museum tours to dusting artifacts. For information on how to help, you can call Phyllis Bitner at 620-249-9333, or sign up online, click here.
