Volunteering at the Newark Museum…always exciting

We invite you to join a dedicated, enthusiastic and passionate group of individuals who play a key role in helping New Jersey’s premier museum bring its many riches to the community.

Volunteering is an ideal way to make new friends, use your skills, and experience the inner workings of a major museum.
