Volunteer Membership


The Museum of Western Art is a non-profit organization which depends heavily on volunteers. The volunteer group is known as the Remuda. This group was organized in 1985 with a board of managers who serve from one to two years. On-going work includes greeting visitors at the admissions desk, library work, selling items in the Museum store and visitor assistance in the art galleries. Volunteers work 4 hour shifts -- 9 to 1 and 1 to 5, Tuesday through Saturday. Many work only 4 hours per week, while others work in more than one area. Exceptional work and extra hours are rewarded in special ways at the annual Christmas party. The annual fee for joining the museum is $35, but after completing 100 hours and continuing to complete your 100 hours each year, this fee is waived.

Whenever possible, volunteers are assigned to their favorite area. However, a “second choice” is most helpful to Museum operation and to the new volunteer. It is possible to change jobs as experience grows and you want to learn new skills. Come join us.
