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 access to unique educational fieldtrips and classes.
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, Thursday through Saturday. Each new docent receives on-the-job training their first day of service.
Covid Policy: The museum takes the pandemic seriously. We have protocols in place to protect our docents and visitors. We only allow ten visitors per hour in the museum. The museum is sanitized on a regular basis. A sneeze guard and sanitizer is in place at the docent desk. We do not make change, if someone pas in cash it must be exact change only. They can also pay by credit card through our Paypal systems. Docents and visitors must wear a mask while at the museum.
