Discover how much fun you can have volunteering at a history museum!

Help students get excited about George Mason and his work to protect Americans' rights. Volunteer docents lead school tours about Mason and his ideas, as well as life in the 18th century. This historic site is located in a beautiful wooded setting just minutes from I-95 and US Route 1.

Visitors to the museum step back in time as they discover the history of Virginia and one of our country's founders. Volunteers discuss topics such as the American Revolution, the writing of the Constitution, the fight for a Bill of Rights. Plus, they help students investigate the lives of people who lived on a Virginia plantation, from the gentry to the people who were enslaved.

Volunteer docents help young people learn about these important and fascinating topics by being

--enthusiastic
--friendly
--committed to historical accuracy
