The role of a THS museum docent is three-fold. 1. They serve as hosts, to provide a welcoming experience. In many cases they are the museum’s "front-line" representatives. 2. They serve as interpreters of the museum’s exhibits, helping to give the visitor a deeper understanding and appreciation of the history. 3. In addition, docents assist in preserving the collections by providing assistance with various projects or tasks. The interpretive or educational role of the docent is the most important and challenging aspect of the job.

  • We encourage scholarship related to Tacoma’s history so that a significant legacy will be available to future generations.
  • We disseminate information about Tacoma’s history and present programs and displays of historical personages, places and events so that all interested persons can develop their understanding and appreciation of this city and its people.
