Apply To Be A Docent

The VHM is accepting applications for new docents! The Museum is looking for candidates with excellent communication skills, a comfort speaking in front of large groups, and a passion for education and history.  Docents lead multiple weekly tours of the museum’s exhibits for school groups, as well as various clubs, companies, police and military, and church groups.  No prior experience is necessary to become a docent.

The late Alexander Lebenstein (shown above) was a devoted VHM docent who enjoyed interacting with students.
