Penn Museum Volunteer Docents

Docents PMWeb copyMeet our docents! Penn Museum has 60 volunteer docents who annually provide gallery tours to thousands of children, teens and college students, families, seniors and special interest groups of all kinds.

Docents go through a rigorous training program at the museum to prepare them to share stories about the cultures and artifacts presented in the galleries. They continue to learn, with ongoing training programs and special lectures throughout the year.

Pictured here at a recent meeting and end of the year luncheon are many of the Museum's docents, who graciously took to the steps of the Kress Gallery entrance to have their group shot taken.
