Hirshhorn Plaza

We are always adding to our list of volunteers for the Hirshhorn. Public volunteers primarily help us get visitors into the event as smoothly and quickly as possible. After two hour long shifts, volunteers are welcome to enjoy the event for free. All shifts are over by 11 pm, and you’ll receive an additional ticket for a friend. Volunteer shifts may include:

  • Coordinating the flow of traffic at the front entrance while guests wait to have their IDs and bags checked
  • Facilitating guest admission at the main entrance
  • Ensuring that the museum galleries aren’t overly crowded

Most departments of the Hirshhorn welcome volunteers. For additional information contact the Smithsonian’s Behind-the-Scenes Volunteer Program.

For information on internships and the Gallery Guides program, please see the Internships page or contact the Hirshhorn at HMSGguides@si.edu.
