On select Saturdays, join volunteers from the Mount St. Helens Institute as they bring their outdoor interpretation skills inside the museum for hands-on activities and informal gallery conversations that help bring to life the history, geology, and natural environment of Mount St. Helens without the drive to the mountain. In addition, MSHI volunteers and PAM docents will be available at 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. on these days to jointly introduce the Volcano! exhibition and offer insights to the art and science of the volcano.

Mount St. Helens Institute
We are excited to partner with the Mount St. Helens Institute on a series of programs, tours, and in-gallery experiences during the exhibition. Founded in 1996, the Mount St. Helens Institute connects people of all ages to Mount St. Helens and the natural world through educational programming designed to enrich visitors’ appreciation and understanding of the Pacific Northwest’s youngest and most active volcano. For more information on the organization, visit mshinstitute.org.
