Museum Docents (Volunteers)
The Children's Peace Pavilion, on the average, touches the lives of approximately 4,000 visitors each year. The majority of our visitors come in groups larger than 10 people, so it is with these groups that we need the most frequent help.
Most groups that visit the Pavilion are here for about two hours. As a Museum Docent, you will be asked to assist or interact with the visitors in one of the four peace concept areas. If we do not have a tour on the day you choose to volunteer, there are always numerous tasks that need to be accomplished in preparation for a tour.
At your leisure, come visit the Pavilion (call ahead to make sure that we know you are coming) to observe other museum docents in action. Watch how they interact with visitors and learn where to find materials for restocking exhibits. Also, see how groups are divided and how the time is monitored for each group. After this visit, you will be on your way to becoming a "Museum Docent."
