Docent Training Introduction


Spotlight Tours give visitors an opportunity to interact with docents at various points throughout the museum’s exhibits. Docents use Gallery Cart reproduction objects related to various topics in the exhibits to interpret the history of the people who have used those objects.

Each stop on a Spotlight Tour is designed to last no more than approximately 10 minutes. This allows school groups to see several stops during the one-hour visit they usually schedule for the museum.
