Volunteer Opportunities: 

Are you looking for an opportunity to share your time and skills, meet new friends, and make a vital contribution to the Timken Museum of Art? Join people like yourself who donate their time and energy to help further the mission of the museum. The Timken has many volunteer opportunities available, both behind the scenes and in contact with the public. All volunteers receive on-site training and an invitation to an annual volunteer recognition reception. Volunteers who work more than 100 hours annually receive discounts at the museum store and free or reduced admission to Timken events. For more information, or to inquire about opportunities, please call 619.239.5548.


Timken Gardens:

Help us maintain the beauty of the Timken gardens and its botanical treasures.  We are seeking volunteers available three hours per month to help with the upkeep.  Projects may include watering, weeding, mulching, pruning and general plant maintenance. 

Donating your time is an excellent way to expand your knowledge of plants, share your love of gardening and experience a different part of the Timken. Your invaluable volunteer effort will help the Gardens blossom and encourage museum patrons to welcome the outside world of wonder and inspiration.

To request a volunteer application, please email info@timkenmuseum.org
