Volunteering at Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh

Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh includes four distinctive museums: Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol Museum.  

Volunteer or intern with us to expand your horizons, meet interesting people, surround yourself with some of civilization's greatest achievements, and explore the amazing history of our natural world and its inhabitants.

Who can volunteer?
Volunteer opportunities change depending on the needs of the museums and exist for teens, college students, and adults of all ages. Volunteers work on the museum floors with the public as well as behind-the-scenes with curators, educators, and other museum staff. Volunteers assist in many ways, from interacting with children to conducting visitor surveys. Once accepted, volunteers are required to provide and pay for background checks and clearances.
