Share your love of history! The DAR Museum is looking for new tour guides to join its volunteer docent program. Docents give tours of the DAR Museum, focusing primarily on the 31 Period Rooms. As the only exclusively decorative arts museum in Washington, D.C., the DAR Museum tells the American story through the unique lens of the American home. Learn more on our website or find us on Facebook.
