Volunteer Opportunities


All you need is the desire to tell our story at the beautiful historic Pitot House Museum. The Pitot House Museum experience is memorable not just because of the exquisite building and unique neighborhood, but because of fantastic, knowledgeable Docents who make the house come alive with historical information and storytelling. We are seeking volunteers one day a week to give tours of the House and engage in lively discussions with the visitors about Louisiana history.

Contact us to find out more about becoming a docent.


The Pitot House offers volunteer internship opportunities to college students and graduates who wish to experience working in a small-nonprofit, historic house museum. Opportunities include education, research, communications, and development.

Contact us for more information on how to become an intern.

School Tour Volunteer

Tours and activities are scheduled through the school year for elementary school students to learn about the history of the Pitot House and life in New Orleans in the 19th century. A typical school visit will include a house tour, game, and 2 hands-on activities. Our trained volunteers of the Education Committee lead games and activities in short sessions (20 minutes) for small groups of children (maximum 10 per group).

Contact us to learn more about volunteering as an educator for the Pitot House.
