Heritage Museum of Asian Art is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Support for the museum’s collections and general operations is provided by generous individuals, corporations, and donations from the visiting public. At the same time, volunteers play an invaluable role in supporting our mission.  They assist museum staff with various tasks including daily operations, tours, marketing, social media, research, and much more. We encourage people from all backgrounds and life experiences to apply to be a volunteer. No experience is required and training is offered.


Volunteers are needed for the following positions:

Front desk and gift shop attendants

Special event attendants

Workshop assistants



Volunteer Requirements


Our volunteers are required to devote two days per month (12 hours/month) to maintain active volunteer status. We require a 3-month commitment from our active volunteers. The museum will be happy to provide recommendation letters to volunteers who complete their 36 hour commitment over the course of 3 months. 



Docents are volunteers who serve as tour guides. They are knowledgeable about the museum’s collection and are able to provide general tours and answer questions. Docents lead tours for school field trips, 3rd Friday free tour nights, and special groups. New docents will attend  training sessions in which they learn about the collection and shadow a tour. New docents are provided with training materials. They are expected to be familiar with the training materials and independently learn more about objects in the collection. Docents have a passion for Asian art and history. They are inspired to learn more about the collection and enjoy sharing their knowledge with the public. As representatives of the Heritage Museum of Asian Art, docents are committed to the museum’s mission and goals. 


Docents are required to give 9 tours per year to maintain active status.
