The goal of the Volunteer Program is to encourage participation from the community to meet Winterthur’s mission to build upon the vision of its founder, Henry Francis du Pont, to inspire and educate through its collections, estate and academic programs by engaging diverse audiences in the study, preservation, and interpretation of American material culture, art, design, and history. Volunteers serve in many departments, supporting paid staff in such areas as Academic Programs, Conservation, Garden, Library, Membership, House and Gallery Tours, Museum Collections, Registration, Visitor Service and School and Community Programs.
If you are interested in joining the hundreds of volunteers who dedicate time and expertise throughout the Museum, Garden and Library, please browse our opportunities at the link below and complete an online application.
