Become a Docent!

One of the common definitions of the word docent is a volunteer who leads tours in a museum. This common understanding does not, however, capture the true qualities of a docent. A docent has a giving heart, is passionate about the value a museum provides to our community, and is someone who loves to volunteer their time for the love of people and the opportunity to share knowledge. We are looking for these types of people .
