Docent Program

Albuquerque Museum and Casa San Ysidro welcome over 100,000 visitors annually and offer guided tours to visitors from varied backgrounds, age levels and abilities.

Trained volunteers, or docents, make these guided experiences possible. Prospective docents should be comfortable speaking in public, enjoy interacting with wide range of people and have a passion for learning and giving back to the community.
