Become an Exhibit Presenter

Do you love getting kids excited about learning and the world around them? At The Children’s Museum you can bring the exhibits to life by volunteering as a docent. Our docents serve as an exhibit guide or program facilitator for our young guests during group visits.

All new docents receive training materials and are introduced to the presentation process through a quick and easy orientation. Please fill out an interest form or contact us to learn more.
