The National Museum of American History is recruiting docents. Ms. Andrea Lowther, Director of Visitor Services, will be scheduling orientation dates for October and November, so people will have an opportunity to come and meet with her before January and hear about the specific openings that they will have this year. The museum is especially in need of weekend docents. For more information regarding the volunteer program at the National Museum of American History, check out their website.
