Museum Docent Program

Principle Activities: 

Docents are an important resource at The Museum of Flight.  They are among the first people to directly interact with visitors.  Docents give tours, conduct aviation and space-related talks, and may be given the opportunity to present school programs.  Docents are stationed throughout the Museum to answer questions about the exhibits and artifacts.  Shift availability depends upon current needs.


  • Have excellent communication skills
  • Teaching or public speaking experience
  • The ability to work with diverse groups of children, adults, staff and volunteers
  • Be able to accept supervision and evaluation of your volunteer work

The next available class is scheduled in March of 2015. If you would like to be considered for the 2015 class, submit your application now.  You will be contacted in January for an interview. You can become involved in other volunteer positions while waiting to attend the docent class.
