Gallery Guides are stationed in the Museums galleries and are there to help visitors get the most out of their visit. Gallery Guides interact with museum visitors by answering questions and sharing information about the museum, its exhibits, and its programs. By spending time in any one of our permanent exhibits, a Gallery Guide becomes a source of information for visitors – pointing out interesting artifacts, sharing intriguing facts, sometimes even giving impromptu mini-tours.
Applications are now open. Please click below.
