Tour

Docents verbally interpret the exhibits on display at the museum, giving life to the stories of Renton's past. Docents provide tours to the public, school groups, and other organizations that schedule visits to the museum. Regular public tours occur every third Saturday at 11:00 am. Other tours are scheduled upon request and will usually take place during regular museum hours (Tues. - Sat., 10:00 am - 4:00 pm). Docents must be excellent public speakers with a working knowledge of all museum exhibits. Docents can work with visitors of all ages, so an ability to customize material to different age groups is required.

Docents are expected to lead at least ten tours a year and commit to at least a year of service. Because tours are only given on request, this position does not have a regular schedule. Extra training hours beyond the position orientation are required for Docents to master the subject matter of the museum's exhibits.
