Employment & Volunteering 



Docents are our tour guides who work with the public to enhance the visitor experience through formal guided tours and informal one-on-one conversations. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about icons, Russian culture, and art history while working closely with a dedicated volunteer group. The program consists of a six-month training period and continuing education opportunities, including lectures, workshops, local trips, and special events.

All training is provided at no cost. New docents are asked to make a one-year commitment. The time requirement is roughly eight to twelve hours per month. In addition, docents must be available to attend meetings on two Wednesday mornings per month from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM.

Currently, the Museum is not accepting new docents into the program. Please watch this space for future opportunities.
