Orient visitors on their visit to the Swannanoa Valley Museum.


Volunteering as a Museum Docent is a great way to learn about local history, meet people, and give back to the community. Volunteers enjoy all the benefits of museum membership and earn rewards redeemable for programs and gift shop merchandise.

Docents greet visitors, introduce the history of the Valley to visitors, track attendance, interpret exhibits, sell gift shop merchandise, and open and close the museum daily. Docent shifts run from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm and 1:30 to 5:00 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Each new docent receives on-the-job training their first day of service.
