Volunteer at the National Museum of Asian Art

Volunteers are an essential link between the National Museum of Asian Art and the public, carrying out the museums’ mission of engaging with visitors and enriching their experiences.

Visitor Information Specialist Program

Visitor Information Specialists provide information services to museum visitors at the information desks and within the galleries. In addition to welcoming visitors, they supply general information about the museums, their exhibitions and collections, and the Smithsonian in general. They also furnish specific information about daily programs and events, and they answer visitor questions. They give directions, make connections to places and events around the Smithsonian, ignite curiosity, and help to ensure visitors have a positive experience at National Museum of Asian Art.

Visitor Information Specialists are accepted on a rolling basis as needed.
