100 Museum DriveNewport News, VA 23606

A Museum Docent gives an overview to visiting college students.


Please share with anyone you know (neighbor, family member, etc) who might want to become a part of The Mariners' Museum's Docent Program!

The Mariners' Museum Docents support the mission of the Museum by telling the story of our connections with the sea. Through gallery tours and interpretation, they help visitors of all ages understand how we are all impacted by the sea. Benefits of being a Docent include continued education opportunities on a variety of maritime topics through formal lectures, training, and personal research; the opportunity to meet visitors from around the globe; and the knowledge that you are contributing to an institution you already love.

We have a special program starting in August and would like to get new Docents and volunteers trained as soon as possible. I will be out of the office on vacation but will respond to everyone on Monday, July 25th.

Please contact Lauren Furey at 757-591-7747 or for more information.
