Historic Home Docent & Museum Greeter / Docent


We are looking for a volunteer who would like to introduce visitors to our 1699 historic house museum, The Hoyt-Barnum House.

You would be involved with greeting visitors with a smile and giving a brief explanation of the Center's offerings: a research library, photo archive, our current exhibit, and our historic house museum. People who wish to tour Hoyt-Barnum House first view an introductory film before starting the audio tour. You would be responsible for selling tickets and recording transactions, giving guests their audio pods and collecting them after the tours, opening and closing up the house museum, and monitoring visitors while they are in the house. Minimal training is needed.

Museum Docents should be friendly and personable. They should be physically able to manage stairs and brief walks on a regular basis. Docents should be able to work at least one 2-3 hour shift each week. One greeter/docent is needed on Saturdays from 1:30 to 3:30 pm roughly AND a Friday afternoon shift for two hours or so. You are welcome to stay longer to meet our other volunteers and make use of our facility.
