If you enjoy our events or like spending time at the Museum consider becoming more involved with activities by becoming a volunteer. Volunteers experience the benefit of personal growth while meeting new and stimulating people. Join our ranks of over 400 current volunteers and help us with a large variety of day-to-day functions and special events. Volunteers are a vital part of life at the New Britain Museum of American Art so please consider downloading the Volunteer Application or inquire at the Front Desk.

New Volunteer Orientations are held every second Saturday of the month at 2 p.m. where new sign-ups learn more about the important roles volunteers fill at the NBMAA as well as basic practices and available volunteer opportunities.
