Oceanside Museum of Art is a dynamic and exciting cultural jewel in downtown Oceanside. Our contemporary art museum team produces 10 - 15 exhibits a year! Being a docent at OMA never gets old. You are always learning about new exhibits and programming, while often having direct contact with artists. Docents give tours to both student (ranging in age from K - college) and adult audiences providing a deeper understanding of the museum's exhibitions. Museum docents also have the option to work with our Education department on a variety of programming.
Bilingual is always a plus!
