We know your time is valuable. In 2018 alone, volunteers donated more than 25,000 hours to the Burke. We couldn’t do what we do without you—thank you, Burke volunteers!
Volunteering at the Burke
The Burke Museum offers volunteer positions for adults (ages 18+). While some positions require committing to a regular schedule, positions with our events team provide opportunities to support public programs and the visitor experience and allow for a more flexible schedule.
New volunteers are required to attend an orientation; some volunteer assignments may require prior experience and/or additional trainings. Individuals who bring diverse perspectives and experience are especially encouraged to apply to open positions.
- Free museum admission
- Discounts in the Burke Store and Cafe
- Special event invitations and continuing education opportunities
- Networking opportunities with curators, researchers, museum professionals and other passionate volunteers
- Up-close and behind-the-scenes connections with Burke collections and research
