When: The schedule for the Volunteer Interpreter Program varies with each different special exhibition, where it is offered, and in some cases this may include weekends and statutory holidays.
Training: Volunteers receive extensive training from Museum staff and other experts, practical information on their role, and guided practice time prior to the exhibition’s opening.
Incentives: Volunteer membership at the Museum with all associated benefits and privileges, as well as special perks offered by the Volunteer Interpreter Program.
