National Canal Museum

The National Canal Museum (NCM), an affiliate of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor is searching for volunteers to serve as docents. Docents do not have to have experience giving museum tours but should be interested in the transportation and industrial history of the region, enjoy talking with the public, and should enjoy learning new things!

Docents can choose from working in the NCM gift shop, greeting visitors and/or providing tours of the museum to visitors.

  • The National Canal Museum is open Wednesdays through Sundays. Museum hours are 11:30 am - 4:30 pm on each day it is open from April to December.

Training is provided. Background checks required but are free.
