Interested in becoming a Museum docent?
Join us for an Info Session on Saturday, February 2, 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. to find out more!

Volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day operations and the long term success of the Cape Ann Museum, and the organization is deeply grateful to all who share their time and talent. Volunteers serve as docents, guiding visitors through the galleries; they assist with cataloging and research projects in the curatorial department and the Library & Archives; and they work with special focus groups, from the Museum’s youngest visitors to its eldest. Volunteers also lead walking tours, serve as hosts at special programs and events, and assist with administrative tasks.

This informational session will be held in the Museum’s auditorium and will provide an overview of the volunteer program. Attendees will learn about the various needs of the Museum, meet others who already volunteer their time and receive an overview of what the training entails. If you love Cape Ann and would like to get more intimately involved with the Cape Ann Museum, please join us!
