Old Mint88 5th StSan Francisco, CA 94103


California Historical Society has been asked to engage the public in the history of the Old Mint through Docent led tours.

These tours occur twice a month, one two weekdays a month.

Docents are given two trainings: one in the building with a historian and architect who is well versed in both touring guests and the building in general and one with the Docent manager.

Docents will gain a new understanding of this rarely experienced historic building and be able to share unique historical moments with a wide array of guests.

This is a wonderful way to share San Francisco's history with the public and learn public facing skills, and about how historical organizations interact with the public.

The trainings equal between 3-6 hours (including readings, meetings, and research) and Docents do 1-2 shifts a month for one hour per shift.
