Docent Program

What is the role of a Docent?

At the Long Beach Museum of Art, our Docents are volunteers who are ambassadors for the Museum. As a crucial facet of the Education Department, Docents educate our public about the Museum’s history, exhibitions, and permanent collection. Our Docents enhance the visitor experience and develop a deeper appreciation for the art in our community

Who is a Docent?
  • A positive individual who enjoys learning from and working with students
  • Someone who delights in engagement and discussion with others
  • An individual who welcomes feedback in order to better their practice
  • Someone who is flexible, open to diverse perspectives, new experiences, and adopts a growth mindset
  • A supporter of one’s peers and the Education Department’s mission
  • A person committed to helping make the museum a welcoming and inclusive space for all
