Docents also have special opportunities to take part in private tours with visiting artists and scholars, field trips to other museums and historic sites, a book club, and more

Whether behind the scenes, in the art studios, or on tour in the galleries, our docents are an integral part of the museum experience and are vital to the development and implementation of all educational tours and programming at Telfair Museums.

Volunteer docents serve as visible and important public ambassadors of Telfair Museums, conducting tours and welcoming local and out-of-town visitors. All that is required is a love for art and enthusiasm for meeting new people. Don’t know a lot about art? Don’t worry! Through training sessions, special talks led by curators and artists, and support from the education staff, you’ll be equipped with what you need to share your love and interest in art to visitors. New docent trainings are held every spring and fall. After completing the docent training program, docents are asked to commit to a minimum of two years of active volunteer docent service.
