Museum Guides

Museum Guides are volunteer tour guides and educators who are essential to fulfilling the Museum’s educational mission. They connect people with art by leading tours and interactive art discussions for a range of visitors, including adults and school groups. The Museum Guide corps is an active community of Museum members who receive rigorous training on art and pedagogy, and who make a long-term commitment to leading museum tours.


UPDATE: The Museum is not currently recruiting Museum Guides. Email Amelia Wiggins at to express interest in joining the next museum guide training class.

Connect people to art. Become a Guide!
Our creative, knowledgeable, and passionate Museum Guides are highly trained volunteers who share their love for art with Museum visitors. The training class will focus on engaging children, students, and adults with the Museum’s richly diverse art collections. Guides have special access to in-depth learning opportunities at the Museum, and they form strong bonds with their collegial and collaborative group of fellow Guides.

Museum Guides are required to give a minimum of two years’ service leading tours, after their training is complete. Tours are assigned around guides’ individual schedules, but the majority of tours take place on weekday mornings throughout the year.
