    LACMA Internship Program Application

    Volunteering is a unique form of philanthropy: a gift of unrestricted time and expertise to the museum. Volunteering provides a means for members to bond over shared artistic passions, and participate in group tours, lectures, receptions and travel. There are a number of ways to give of your time to help LACMA. 

    Museum Service Council

    The Museum Service Council provides support to museum administrative staff, curators, and educational and family programs. Our volunteers work in the libraries, the Welcome Center, and the Boone Children's Gallery, help staff Family Day activities, act as hosts for special events, and assist in the museum stores. As a benefit, council members receive special invitations to private exhibition tours, activities and lectures with eminent curators. 

    The volunteer selection and training process occurs as needed, usually once per year. Stay tuned to this page for updates.

    Docent Council

    Members of the Docent Council provide tours of the permanent collection and special exhibitions for children and adults. School tours for students in grades 1–12 are scheduled weekday mornings, excluding Wednesdays, during the regular school year. Public gallery tours are offered throughout the year every afternoon the museum is open. The monthly schedule of public tours can be found on the LACMA calendar.

    We are not currently accepting applications for the Docent Council. Details will be posted here when we begin the recruiting process.

    An art background is not required in order to be a docent.  Prospective docents should have an interest in learning about art, working with students and facilitating positive museum experiences for visitors.  In addition to giving tours, docents enjoy an extensive program of continuing education provided by museum curators and lectures given by other leading scholars.  Upon completion of the application and interview process, newly selected docents participate in a two-year provisional program: one year devoted to weekly training in LACMA’s collection and touring techniques, and a second supervised year as a touring docent.
