Volunteer & Internships


The Museum welcomes friendly people who enjoy engaging in dialogue with a variety of museum patrons of all ages, especially school‐aged children. Docents must have a sincere interest in art and history (though no formal background is required in either subject area), as well as a passion for lifelong-learning and education.

Becoming a docent is a commitment. Docents commit to a minimum of three years of service, including two years of weekly training during the academic year (September–May).

Note: The Museum recruits docents on an alternating yearly basis. The next docent recruitment cycle begins Spring 2022 for the Fall 2022 class. Docent training is not an internship and cannot be used for course credit.
