If you love art, researching art and historical topics and interacting with the public, or would like to develop these skills to lead engaging, interactive gallery tours, you should explore becoming a docent. The initial training involves 12 classes that meet weekly for 2 ½ hours. Museum Docents make a 12-month commitment to lead gallery tours to enhance our visitors’ museum experience.
