Docent Training Opportunities

The Museum of Texas Tech University offers a docent training program for individuals age 18 and over interested in giving tours of the facility. This is a fun and interesting way to become more involved with the museum and further our mission to educate and entertain our community.

A docent is a:

  • Teacher
  • Lecturer
  • Tour guide
  • Vital volunteer

Docents are teachers with a unique classroom. Their purpose is to educate using the Museum's art, objects and artifacts.

If you would like to learn how to use the Museum and/or our amazing docents as part of your classroom or curriculum, please join us for the next Docent Training Program.

Recruiting session is set for:

March 11, 2017

Docent training will take place over the course of three classes held on March 25, April 1, and April 8. Classes will take place from 10:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. You'll learn about the Museum's vast collections, but also how to use tours as teaching aids, create tours of the galleries in the museum, the elements of design and much more.
