Docent volunteers are educators trained to further the public’s knowledge and understanding of the museum collections. They deliver themed tours and talks and create a friendly, welcoming environment for museum visitors. Docent volunteers enjoy the rewarding experience of connecting visitors to the objects in the museum. If you are interested in education, history, art, toys, or miniatures, and enjoy interacting with people, this is the perfect role for you!
Home to the world’s largest collection of fine-scale miniatures and one of the largest toy collections on public display in the United States, The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures has a friendly volunteer community that enjoys benefits such as free admission passes for family and friends, discounts in the museum store, special behind-the-scenes opportunities, and exciting activities and field trips throughout the year.
Docent volunteers will attend a fun and informative 9-week training course that begins in March 2017. We'd love to have you join our dedicated and welcoming community of volunteers!
