They learn about the Museum’s collection, traveling exhibits, the history of the Museum and practice touring techniques. They are well-equipped and well prepared for conducting tours for all ages. This year HMA’s 44 docents spent 1,670 hours in training and touring. They conducted 229 tours to 9,572 people, providing exciting and engaging interactions in nature and the arts. If you are interested in learning more about volunteering as a docent, contact HMA Museum & Schools Coordinator Cindy Dearborn at [email protected] or (304) 529-2701. These six docents have completed their yearlong training, have graduated from the program and are ready to conduct tours.
