Become a Museum Volunteer

The Sailing Museum & National Sailing Hall of Fame is dedicated to teamwork, education, making sailing legends come alive and entertaining sailing enthusiasts. If you would like to support both the sailing and the local Aquidneck Island communities, please consider giving your time and talent to helping visitors make the most of their experience.

While on the museum floor, volunteers will:

  • Demonstrate interactive exhibits
  • Provide insight into museum programs, services, memorabilia and more
  • Engage with visitors by answering questions

While working on administrative needs or special events, volunteers will:

  • Support special museum events coordination, organization and execution
  • Assist with light office work, such as mailings and outreach campaigns

All it takes is a welcoming smile, desire to be sociable and a willingness to learn and share your knowledge. Familiarity of sailing, yachting, and Newport history are pluses. Training will be provided.

Various museum shifts are available as the museum is open daily from 10am – 5pm. Please complete the form below to get started, and one of our museum staff members will be in touch.
