DOCENTS

The Docent Corps is an integral part of the Cummer Museum. Docents are dynamic, dedicated Museum volunteers with diverse backgrounds who lead tours of the permanent collection and temporary exhibitions for school groups, families, and adults. No previous teaching or art history experience is required as Docents attend monthly training sessions with Museum staff in order to learn about the various types of tours offered by the Museum, the history of the Cummer family, the permanent collection, and the gardens. Once training is completed, Docents make a weekly commitment of their time that makes the Museum’s tour programs possible. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Docent Corps, please contact Docent Relations  at 904.899.6003 or Docents@cummermuseum.org.

At this time, we are no longer accepting applications for the 2020-2021 year. Please continue to check our website for updates. 

 

JUNIOR DOCENTS

This program enables middle and high school students to learn about the permanent collection through research, hands-on exploration, and group interaction, allowing them to share their knowledge with visitors through discussion and demonstration. These bright young adults are some of the Museum's most important volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Junior Docent Corps, please call 904.899.6005 or contact Juniordocents@cummermuseum.org.
