We are seeking volunteers to serve as Gallery Guides in the Museum’s permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. Bilingual volunteers are especially needed to guide Museum guests who speak Spanish or Marshallese. Other languages are also welcomed.

Interested individuals (this includes current volunteers and those who wish to become volunteers at the museum) will be required to interview for the opportunity and undergo two phases of training. Interviews will be conducted in November of this year. Phase one of the Guide training (a two-week intensive session) begins in February, and phase two in June of 2017. Details about the trainings will be covered in the information session.

Once each candidate has completed training and been accepted as a Gallery Guide, he or she will be asked to make a commitment to offering tours and attending ongoing trainings.

How do I learn more?

To learn more about what it means to be a Gallery Guide, and to receive an overview of the training required, attend one of these information sessions at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Sessions will be held in the Bellows and Cassatt classrooms on the Museum’s lower level.
