The Guest Services Department is seeking volunteers to enhance the visitor experience. The host will greet and direct museum visitors and guests and help guests orient themselves to the building. This position roams throughout all museum galleries with the intent and purpose of interacting with all museum guests during their visit. For example, the Museum Host may spend time in the Anschutz Hamilton Hall, greeting visitors and helping them use the time machines or navigate to the exhibit galleries. Then they may walk through the first and second floor galleries, checking on visitors and answering questions that may come up. They may also check in and interact with volunteer and staff facilitators, resetters, performers, and so on.
