Volunteer at WiltonFor almost 60 years volunteers have been leading guests through the rooms of Wilton and making them feel welcome during Wilton’s many events. 

Volunteers are always needed to give guided tours of Wilton House Museum. Volunteers are needed as well to serve as greeters in our Visitor’s Center and welcome guests to Wilton!

If you are interested in helping around Wilton, email our Director of Visitor Experience, Erica Blake, at eblake@wiltonhm.org.

Becoming a Tour Guide

Leading guided tours at Wilton is one of the greatest gifts we receive from our volunteer guides.  For as few as 4 hours a month, being a guide at Wilton is rewarding to both visitor and guide. Guides receive all of the above mentioned benefits, plus regular training and interpretation updates.  Previous knowledge of Wilton and its history is not required, only your desire to learn and lead.  If you would like to know more about becoming a guide, or have any questions about leading tours, please contact us.
