Museum Docents

We need folks with an interest in the space program to act as Docents. If you can only serve a few hours, that's okay. We are open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. six days a week (closed Sunday) and have openings available at various points throughout the schedule. If you have worked in the space program, that's even better but it is not a must. But you should have an interest in, and some knowledge of, the American Space Program. We will train you and provide a script (but we encourage people to insert their own observations, anecdotes and information in order to make each tour unique.) MUST be comfortable speaking to strangers and engaging the public!

We would prefer you volunteer weekly whenever possible, but will consider bi-weekly or monthly. We have a relaxed, fun working environment and try very hard to support and honor our volunteers with bi-monthly luncheons, giveaways, etc.

Contact the Office Coordinator Angie Roberts at Angela@americanspacemuseum.org or 321-264-0434.

PLEASE DO NOTE REGARDING COVID-19: Our tentative re-opening date is June 1st, and we WILL require safety protocols to be in place for everyone entering the building, including guests. Hours will also be reduced, closing at 4 each day, to allow for extensive evening cleanings in addition to the cleanings happening during the day.

About American Space Museum / Space Walk of Fame Foundation

Location:

308 PINE ST, TITUSVILLE, FL 32796, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is two-fold, as our tagline indicates: "Preserving Achievement; Inspiring Innovation." First, we honor those who built the American space program by preserving their artifacts, history and individual stories. Second, we use those stories and artifacts as an educational springboard toward inspiring a new generation to innovate, invent, explore and discover.

Description

We have a 6,000 sq ft facility in downtown Titusville, dedicated to honoring America's space pioneers and displaying their artifacts and achievements. We also offer STEAM Space, a dynamic education program that features almost-weekly programming for grades 3-12, a variety of camps of activities and a Makerspace, which will be opened by the end of 2016. We are also building a one-of-a-kind SALT program, focusing on Strategic thinking, Administration, Leadership and Teamwork.

Our museum is open 6 days a week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a suggested donation of $10 per adult, $8 for military and seniors, $5 for students 13-18 and FREE for students under 12. Our near-by Space Walk of Fame monuments are available for viewing year-round. We offer docents who worked in the space program and can tell the story of our space history from a personal perspective. We also offer a hands-on experience where visitors can interact with some (not all) of our artifacts...including a mission control console that was used during the Apollo and Shuttle programs, and a NASA program desk from 1964, which offers visitors the chance to dial an old rotary phone and type on a NASA typewriter from the era.
