Research & Collections Stories


Are you interested in museums and world arts and cultures? Do you like meeting new people? Are you an active learner? If so, you should consider joining our friendly team of MOA Volunteer Associates.

MOA volunteers contribute their time and expertise to many of the programs, activities and events at the Museum. Our success depends on the support of enthusiastic volunteers who benefit from thorough training and ongoing educational opportunities.

Generally, MOA recruit new volunteers each spring. If you would like to know when the next round of recruitment begins, please sign up for our email list.

The Volunteer Associates

Volunteers become members of a self-governing Volunteer Association that works under the direction of MOA staff to meet many of our public education, research and collections needs. Volunteers contribute through the following committees:

  • Archaeology Collections and Programs
  • Collections and Conservation
  • Educational Programs
  • Gallery Guided Tours
  • Library and Archives
  • Research
  • Textiles
  • Visitor Information
