Volunteers are an important and integral part of the John F. Peto Studio Museum and have been since the Museum opened its doors. Join this dedicated group of volunteers by becoming involved in a variety of exciting year-round opportunities.

Museum Guides / Docents

The Museum offers guided tours of its collection and special exhibitions to adult and student groups on a year-round basis. Prior to guiding, volunteer guides must complete a training course and successfully conduct a tour for a member of the education staff.

Special Events

Throughout the year, the Museum hosts numerous special events, which require the assistance of volunteers during the week, on weekends and evenings. These events include our Summer Concert Series, Christmas House Tour, lectures, The Peto Cup Race and more!

Data Entry + Archiving

Clerical and Data Entry tasks can take place in a variety of areas at the Museum. These volunteers can also assist with events and projects on an “as needed” basis. These activities may include set-up of events, greeting guests, administrative tasks and other specialized duties.
