Volunteer Opportunities

The Kempf House Museum, an 1853 Greek Revival house, listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, was home to the German-American Kempf family from 1888-1953. Now managed by a volunteer nonprofit board, it is furnished with Victorian antiques and many of the Kempf’s musical treasures, including Ann Arbor’s first concert grand piano, an 1877 Steinway. Some attractions include exhibits of period domestic life, a heritage garden, a traditional German family Christmas, Valentine’s teas, and Wednesday noon lecture series in both spring and fall. Guided tours on selected Sundays 1-4 p.m. or by appointment. Admission free, donations appreciated.
