Do you like sharing American history with the public? Researching decorative arts? Keeping track of numbers? If you want to use your skills and gain new ones in a museum setting, we have a place for you!
DAR Museum Docents provide a valuable link between our visitors and the collection. Docents offer guided tours of the museum’s period rooms. They volunteer about 2 days a month and serve walk-in visitors as well as groups and school children. New docents participate in an extensive training period, while experienced docents benefit from continuing education in the decorative arts, history, and museum practices. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Undergraduate and graduate students interested in gaining experience in American history, decorative arts, education, and collections management should consider an internship with the DAR Museum. The duration and frequency are flexible. Internships are unpaid, but academic credit can be arranged in cooperation with your institution. For more information, please contact email@example.com.
Volunteers at the DAR Museum provide a valuable resource to a non-profit organization while gaining and honing their skills. Projects include:
- Library support
- Visitor services
- Data collection and organization
- Social media assistance
