Museum docents work in our learning center, welcome center, and throughout our exhibit and public spaces. They greet visitors, answer general questions, facilitate learning and discovery, and provide tours of the National Archives. They inform visitors about current exhibits and educational programs provided by the National Archives. They share their knowledge about National Archives documents, our exhibits, and the architectural features of the Custom House.
Our current volunteer hours are Monday through Friday 10:00 to 5:00 and the first Saturday of each month 10:00 to 4:00. We ask potential volunteers to commit to at least 6 months of service.
