Activities include managing the galleries during public open hours, assisting visitors, staffing the ticket office, cloakroom and other visitor facilities, supporting the museum staff in various departments and participating in the educational activities of the museum, including presentations to the public, guided tours and workshops with children. The program includes educational activities such as seminars, conferences, educational trips and guided tours for interns.
