Volunteer Opportunities

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 Sundays, 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 Greeter

Be the first friendly face visitors see as they enter the museum from the parking garage! If you prefer to be able to sit during your volunteer opportunity, this is a great option for you. Help visitors find their way, hand out brochures, and welcome people to the museum.

Join New York Times best-selling author, film scholar and historian, and resident film curator MARC ELIOT, for the ART OF FILM featuring the greatest films ever released, presented the way they were meant to be seen on the Giant Screen.
