Museum Service Volunteers

The Museum Service Volunteers is the volunteer corps that enthusiastically helps to facilitate a broad range of educational activities, inspiring events, and essential services.

We are committed to advancing new museum-wide strategic initiatives that update the visitor experience and connect our audience to art and culture at Palm Springs Art Museum, Architecture and Design Center/Edwards Harris Pavilion, and The Galen/ Faye Sarkowsky Sculpture Garden.

Join us for an enriching and fulfilling volunteer experience. Share your passion for art and culture. Share a dose of desert hospitality with visitors. Volunteer!
