Support the Santa Barbara Historical Museum by making a contribution today.
A docent is a volunteer teacher who serves the Museum and the community as a local history educator.
Currently, we have three types of docents at our Museum. Some docents choose to volunteer in all three categories, while others focus on one area of expertise. Touring Docents lead adult gallery tours, School Program Docents lead our programs and tours for school groups visiting the Museum and our Outreach Docents give PowerPoint presentation in the local community and in the area high schools. Docents attend monthly continuing education meetings as part of their ongoing professional development. Once our historic homes reopen, we will also have historic home docents.
