The Pushkin Museum welcomes volunteers to support our inclusivity projects

02.12.2017

The Pushkin Museum is recruiting volunteers to support our inclusivity projects and accompany visitors with disabilities.

The Pushkin State Museum collection offers all visitors, including adults and children with disabilities and special needs, a unique opportunity to learn about the world we live in and various cultural legacies. For many years the Pushkin Museum has partnered with foundations and associations that provide support to people with disabilities.

In our continuous effort to expand inclusivity, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts launched the "Accessible Museum" project in September 2016. The project includes exhibitions and educational initiatives, as well as events that provide a comfortable environment for visitors with different capabilities. The project's goal is not only to develop special projects, but also to maximize the accessibility of existing programs. The Pushkin Museum staff does their best to ensure that people with special needs can enjoy a comfortable visit in all of our buildings and premises.

We are recruiting volunteers to support our inclusivity initiatives and accompany visitors with disabilities around the Museum. Come join our team!
