Volunteer
Museum Guides

A Museum Guide at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is a trained volunteer who facilitates learning in the galleries and creates a sense of welcome and belonging for visitors of all ages. Museum Guides assist with a variety of drop-in activities, including walk-in tours, gallery stations, and family gallery activities.

Museum Guides volunteer two times per month for three-hour shifts on evenings and weekends. In addition to an initial training, Museum Guides also complete ongoing training throughout the year. This role is available to individuals who are 18 years or older.

We are currently between training cycles. If you are interested in becoming a Museum Guide in the future, please contact us at volunteer@nelson-atkins.org for more information.
