When you volunteer with us, you expand your horizons, meet interesting people. Surround yourself with some of civilization's greatest achievements, including fine, pop and contemporary art. Understand and explore the amazing history of our Natural World and its inhabitants.
Who can volunteer? Volunteer opportunities exist for teens, college students and adults of all ages. Opportunities are always changing depending on the needs of the museum. We regret that there are not enough opportunities for all of our applicants. If you are interested in volunteering, please review this Web site carefully and submit your application. We will make every effort to match qualified volunteers with rewarding experiences that match your interests and museum needs. At the present time volunteer opportunities are very limited. Volunteers may be required to provide and pay for background checks and clearances.
Volunteering at Carnegie Museum of Art
Volunteers assist with children’s art activities and classes. Teens age 16 and up assist with a variety of education activities including summer camps. Volunteers are found in most curatorial departments doing research, record keeping and general office work. Opportunities also exist for special projects and programs and for conducting marketing and exhibition surveys. Museum of Art volunteers also greet visitors to the Scaife galleries, provide directions to galleries and activities, and offer free audio guides. After an extensive training program, volunteers may also lead tours for adults, children, families and school groups.
