Event Details

The Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science will soon begin its new season of training for new Docents.  These volunteers lead patrons of all ages, from school children to lifelong learners, on educational adventures designed to complement the classroom experience and bring the Museum’s offerings to life.  The Docent Association is seeking volunteers who would enjoy learning about the Museum and sharing their love of art, history, science and education by leading tours. The Mummy Tour, Mystery at the Museum and the Koch Immersive Theater are just a few of the many different tour options.

Museum Docents are offered unique opportunities to open new doors of knowledge, friendship and fun.  Docent chairpersons and Museum staff offer excellent training, and Docents are offered many learning opportunities, including exclusive art history classes and educational trips to other museums and galleries.

Individuals wishing to consider training to become a Docent are invited to attend an informational Welcome Brunch on Thursday, August 17 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. For additional information or to reserve a spot at the Welcome Coffee, contact the Museum at 812-425-2406 or email education@emuseum.org. If you are interested and cannot attend this Welcome event, please let us know. We look forward to your participation!
