A Museum is only as strong as the community that supports it, and Museum Docents are the keystone of Blackhawk Museum. Highly knowledgeable and extremely passionate, they give their free time to enhance the experience of every visitor that comes through the door. Whether representing the Museum at a Car Show, giving a guided tour on the weekend, teaching a class of children where the automobile belongs in history, or simply lending their real-world expertise to the Museum's staff, the Blackhawk Museum couldn't function without these volunteers.
The Museum's New Docents Training Program begins with an orientation to the program and the Museum. Training sessions by staff and guest speakers are held two Thursday mornings a month from 10am-Noon. Graduation is in June and there are no sessions held in December.
Docents learn about permanent and changing exhibitions at the Museum as well as touring techniques for diverse visitors. For information and to receive a docent packet please contact Nora Wagner at (925) 736-2277 ext 238 and leave a name, number and address on her voicemail or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
