Volunteer at UMLAUF

Visitor Services / Front Desk

Visitor Services Volunteers provide excellent customer service and are the first to greet museum visitors. They are responsible for handling museum admissions and gift shop purchases. Volunteers answer questions, offer information about the collection, current exhibits, and occasionally give directions. We also ask that our volunteers commit to at least one three-hour shift a month. We are an art- loving community and this is a wonderful way to meet others that share in our enthusiasm!


Our museum Docents lead guided tours for a diverse audience of visitors about once a month. To be a docent, you must be comfortable speaking in front of small groups and committed to creating a unique and memorable experience for visitors. Docents are always allowed to pick and choose the types of tours they would like to give (high school students, elementary age children, visiting conferences, assisted living groups, etc.). You do not need an Art History degree to be a docent, only an enthusiasm for learning and passion for the arts!

Garden Clean Up

The garden grounds of the Umlauf are an important part of our visitor experience. To help keep these areas beautiful between professional gardening visits, the museum relies on outside groups of enthusiastic volunteers. Once a month, small and large groups can spend 3-5 hours in the morning, sweeping, gardening, and cleaning up the grounds.

If you are an individual with a passion for gardening, we are looking for volunteers to assist in the management of these groups and work with the Museum to create a long-term maintenance plan for seasonal planting.

Special Events

Special Events Volunteers are crucial to the success of events we have at the UMLAUF. They set-up and break down the events, assist in greeting and checking guests in, assist with running activities for the event, interact with our visitors, and much more. The best part is, they get free admission to the event while helping the museum!

For more information about any of the opportunities available, please email volunteer@umlaufsculpture.org.
