Volunteer with Moravian Historical Society

Volunteer Museum Tour Guides

Do you love teaching and learning about history? Do you enjoy interacting with people of all ages?

The Moravian Historical Society invites you to serve as a volunteer museum tour guide!

As part of our team, you will:

  • Provide a welcoming atmosphere and serve as ambassadors for the organization as the Museum's first contact with the public

  • Interpret the Museum's exhibitions, helping to give the visitor a deeper understanding and appreciation of the history of the Moravians

 

Expand your knowledge of the Moravians' contributions to local, regional, and international history, and share this knowledge with visitors. This is a rewarding position that requires interpretive and communication skills, a willingness to learn, and enthusiasm for the Museum, stories, and historic site of the Moravian Historical Society.

Training

Museum tour guides will attend training sessions on Museum collections, histories, and stories. You will learn the skills associated with museum interpretation, including guiding and conversing with guests. These sessions are conducted by the Museum staff, including the Curator and Executive Director, as well as by guests speakers. Training will also include independent reading assignments, resource materials, and short presentations. Following the training sessions, candidates must complete a satisfactory practice tour for staff and fellow volunteers. 

Training will take place in Fall 2024
