Join us for an open house on Tue, Oct 3 at 11:00 AM
Learn about becoming a Museum Guide and other volunteer opportunities within the Education Department. During this informational session our staff will explain our application process and training in more detail.
Guides are museum volunteers who are specially trained to engage visitors of all ages and backgrounds in active explorations of our collections. We are currently recruiting individuals for our next guide training class, which will be focused on the Museum of Art. The next training class is scheduled to begin January 2024, and we are seeking enthusiastic life-long learners for this opportunity.
We offer two tracks to become a Museum of Art guide. Guides may choose the track that best fits their availability!
Concerned that you know very little about art, history, or museums in general? Not to worry! The training course is comprehensive and includes extensive content-based lectures as well as training on effective touring techniques. If you are interested in helping us preserve and share The Ringling legacy, we encourage you to apply!

This information session will be conducted in the Chao Lecture Hall, located on the 3rd floor of the Center for Asian Art. Please park in the main parking lot and enter through the Visitors Pavilion.
