Organization Profile

The Space Station Museum / The W Foundation

What We Do:

“The Space Station” Museum is a privately funded, volunteered staffed space exploration museum that is operated by the 501c3 non-profit corporation, “The W Foundation” (TWF) ( TWF owns one of the largest private collections of U.S., Russian and Soviet space exploration artifacts. The organization has attracted legendary figures such as Apollo 12 Astronaut Dick Gordon, award-winning actor Bill Pullman and video game designer Will Wright to its Board of Advisors.The Space Station is an innovation in museum exhibits in that vacant commercial space is filled and the public gains a new education venue in their local neighborhood through private contributions. It is located in the Pacheco Plaza, a shopping center located in the upscale Ignacio neighborhood of Novato. Admission is free.

Who We Are:

Our museum is open Friday (5pm to 8pm), Saturday & Sunday, 1-4. We are looking for volunteers who can help greet guests, manage our small shop, and share information about our artifacts with visitors (we will provide training, so knowledge of space exploration is appreciated but not necessary). Ideally, volunteers would stay at the museum for the full four hours and would be able to volunteer their time twice a month. Ages range from 15 to 83.
