Volunteer Opportunities

Ongoing:

Gallery Attendant

Share your enthusiasm for the Riverfront Museum with visitors to the galleries! Sign up for shifts as a gallery attendant between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays, per the schedule.  There's no need for special expertise in the content - you'll have plenty of time to learn about and enjoy the exhibits while you're here. Your main job is to be friendly and welcoming and help guests enjoy their museum experience.

Welcome Center

Become a part of our welcome center team! We need friendly faces to greet guests as they arrive at the museum! This is a good opportunity for people who prefer to sit while helping out.

Landscape Assistant

Looking for some fresh air and exercise? Help us make our gardens look as beautiful as a museum garden should. Come any time that's convenient for you for as long as you'd like, and help us pull weeds. Bring your own gloves and favorite weed pulling implements; we'll pick up and dispose of what you pull.
