It’s an exciting time to become a History Center volunteer docent!

From now through 2021, our museum will undergo major renovations, including new exhibitions and outdoor

spaces. Become a part of history in the making and grow with us! Help serve as a gateway for community

engagement, education, and inspiration by preserving and sharing Central Florida’s continually unfolding

story. Whether you can give three hours or 30 hours a month, any service is appreciated, and we’d love for

you to join our tour team!

Who does the History Center serve?

We do our best to make the museum accessible for all. We offer programming for ages 3 to 103! There’s

something for everyone - group tours, day and evening events, family programs, and exhibit openings.

Volunteers bring the museum to life! Without our volunteers’ time and talents, we wouldn’t be able to serve

thousands of visitors annually. Volunteer docents at the History Center help guide, teach, and inspire children

and families from our community, potentially impacting the lives of countless people.

Volunteer rewards

In return for generously donating their time, History Center volunteers enjoy numerous rewards, including

appreciation events, on-going learning opportunities, exclusive gallery tours, complimentary tickets to the

museum, and a free History Center membership based on hours of service.
