Become a docent at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum!

Docents lead adult and children tours, which are key in reaching the Museum’s mission. Tours connect guests with art and artifacts so guests may become stewards of our Western heritage!

Orientation is Thursday, August 24 at 9:00 a.m. Training begins on Thursday, August 31 and is scheduled every Tuesday and Thursday until September 28. New recruits must commit to attending all 10 days of orientation and training. This is vitally important because docents receive nationally recognized training to best prepare them for this role! Training times vary, but are generally between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

If you are ready to become a docent and preserve and interpret the evolving history and cultures of the American West, then complete the Volunteer Application. Once it is received and reviewed, a museum staff member will contact you to schedule an interview.

Volunteering is an exceptional way to make a difference in other people’s lives, as well as yours! Whether you meet a child for their first museum visit or a Prix de West artist on their tenth, you will not forget these unique volunteer experiences.


We look forward to meeting you!
