Tour guides are our link to the public. Docents provide the visitor with a history of the Mansion and Pabst family. No prior knowledge is necessary, but a desire to learn is essential.

The tours are an hour and fifteen minutes and discuss the history, architecture, and family stories associated with the Mansion.

Training takes a few weeks, and involves an orientation, shadowing several tours and the opportunity to practice your Docent skills with friends and family. On a working day a Docent can expect to give one tour, or even two tours with a break in between.
