Help us show off the Old State Capitol by providing an educational experience for tour groups. You will be trained to give a guided tour of our building and exhibits for an adult or school group that schedules a tour with us. Volunteers who sign up to be a touring docent are asked to commit to 1.5 hours to provide a structured tour. Groups are not scheduled on Saturdays, so this position is Tuesday through Friday and as needed.
