ORGANIZATION: MOFFETT FIELD HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Image_202208041301

Help visitors have an enjoyable experience and learn about the history of Moffett Field by interpreting our exhibits and artifacts. Tour the airfield, talk to visitors about the history of hangar one, or teach visitors about the technology developed at Moffett Field.

No experience or specialized knowledge is necessary to start as a docent. Training will be provided and will include shadowing other docents, reading in the museum's library and watching videos.

(from our website):
Exhibits are organized by significant eras of history, starting with the early 1930s. Visitors can arrange a tour with one of our dedicated docents, many of whom have literally "walked the talk" during their service to our country.

Check our reviews on Google. Visitors love our docents and we'd love to have you on the team.
