These volunteers help guests find their way in the museum, and provide information about the event’s activities, the museum, and the city.

Requirements

Training and Commitment

After successful completion of an orientation, volunteers generally work 4 hour shift at events, with mandatory training sessions the day of the event. Dates for upcoming events can be found on our ‘Events’ tab.
