Become a Docent

Join the Autry’s Docent Class of 2017

Make new friends and expand your understanding of the American West! Autry docents provide guided tours of permanent galleries and special exhibitions to diverse audiences while gaining intimate knowledge of the museum and its collections.

Training Program: Mondays, July 17–September 18, 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.*

As an Autry docent, you will enjoy many social and professional benefits, including Autry-sponsored parties and gatherings, monthly potlucks, and field trips—not to mention the creation of lifelong friendships!

Autry docents conduct tours for schoolchildren one day during the week or twice a month on weekends for families and adult groups.

No experience necessary. Training includes classes in Western history, art and art history, material culture, education, touring techniques, and more.

Responsibilities include providing weekly tours, maintaining active Autry membership, and participating in continuing education both at the museum and throughout the region.

$50 program fee includes reading materials. Apply early, as class size is limited.
