Visitor Services

Our Visitor Services volunteers greet visitors, assist with admission, ticket, and merchandise sales; answer questions and provide guest information; and monitor the galleries and the Museum Store.


Event volunteers work with Museum staff to organize, promote, set-up, monitor, and/or clean-up special events at the Museum. Events include exhibition openings/previews, walking tours, social events (TOAST Asheville, Museum Gala), and more. Events are a great way to share information about the Museum with visitors and to meet other arts enthusiasts in the Asheville area.


Education volunteers work with the Learning + Engagement staff to assist with programs for families, adults, and educators.
