El Rancho de las Golondrinas could not operate without the help of its dedicated volunteers. If you enjoy the history and culture of New Mexico, consider volunteering at Las Golondrinas. We host 50,000 visitors annually from around the world and always need talented history interpreters to answer questions, guide tours and demonstrate what life was like at an authentic Spanish Period rancho.

I want to learn more about Volunteering.


Volunteering at our beautiful 200 acre museum is very rewarding. We work with your schedule to make donating your time at Las Golondrinas a positive experience.


Our volunteers bring diverse interests and talents to the Museum. We appreciate contributions in a wide-range of areas.

Some of the opportunities include:

  • Interpreting History
