Our educators provide Docents with knowledge of the museum's collections, history and mission, so that they will be fully capable of welcoming visitors and leading tours.

    Once Docents have completed the training process, they will be asked to serve approximately four, three hour shifts per month and will commit to a one-year period of service to the museum.
