About the Museum

Volunteering at the Museum

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Royal Alberta Museum!

We are proud to have a dedicated team of over 150 volunteers whose generous contributions support our museum work and inspire us daily. Each volunteer brings their own set of skills, qualities, life experiences and talents; in return, we provide a supportive environment where you can explore our collections, learn new things, share passions and make great friends.


Behind-the-scenes volunteer assignments at the museum support both our administrative and curatorial teams; these shifts take place Monday to Friday between 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.


We have many volunteer opportunities that support our operational, learning and programming teams seven days per week. We also offer Thursday evening shifts throughout the fall and winter seasons.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Join our vibrant and diverse volunteer community! If you are interested and available to donate at least six hours per week with a minimum six month commitment; and meet our minimum age requirements (18+), please fill out your volunteer application here.
