Spending a Sunday afternoon surrounded by original artworks is a pleasure for many. Everybody who enjoys art and is open to new experiences, is welcome to the Overbeck-Museum. In order to keep the museum open all weekend, we depend on volunteers.

For Saturdays and Sundays, mornings or afternoons (3 hours each), we are looking for volunteer support, acting as guards in our exhibition rooms.

Whether once a week, once a month or less frequent – every help is welcome. No special knowledge is required. The only prerequisite is the enjoyment of art and of spending time with people.

If you are interested, please contact us at

We are looking forward to meeting you!
