Museum Volunteer Program


Join the Gardner Museum’s Community of Volunteers

The Gardner Museum is a stunning 15th-century Venetian-style palace with three stories of galleries surrounding a sunlit, flower-filled courtyard. A sanctuary of beauty, the Gardner is renowned for inspiring artworks, dynamic programming - including special exhibitions of contemporary and historic art - and a commitment to ensuring that all visitors feel welcome.

Museum Volunteer Program

Imagine meeting visitors from near and far, answering questions about artworks and wayfinding, gathering visitor feedback, and helping people fall in love with the Gardner. You can do all of this and more as one of our volunteers at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum!

If you are someone with an open mind, who delights in learning from and interacting with all kinds of people, consider joining our volunteer program. A background in art or art history is not necessary! The volunteer schedule is flexible and includes Thursday evening and weekend shifts.

If accepted into the program, Volunteer Training will take place on Sunday, June 4, 9:30am - 1:30pm and on Thursday, June 22, 5:30pm - 9:00pm. You must be able to attend both sessions.
How To Apply:
To apply and to learn more, please join us for a required information session on Friday, June 9th from 10am - 12pm.
Space is limited. To register and receive an application, or if you have questions, please contact Meghan Quigley at 617 278 5147 or via email at

We look forward to seeing you at the Gardner!

About this Organization:
The Museum was the creation of Isabella Stewart Gardner (1840-1924) 'for the education and enjoyment of the public forever.' Since opening to the public in 1903, the Gardner has served as a center for ideas and life-long learning in its community - a tradition that is kept alive today through an array of interpretive, creative, educational, horticultural, artistic and scholarly programs.
