Morbid Anatomy Museum? If not, why not consider becoming a volunteer docent?
Although this is an unpaid position, being a museum docent is an excellent addition to your resume, and the museum is happy to provide references for regular docents. Shifts run from 11:45-6:00 all days except Tuesdays, and there is no minimum requirement.
Volunteer docents also receive special perks:
- Free admission to museum exclusive opening parties
- An atmospheric, quiet place to work with free wifi and unlimited access to the Morbid Anatomy Library collection of books and artifacts
- One free event (under $10) for each shift worked
- $20 off book purchases in the gift store for every five shifts you work, per exhibition
- Preview of upcoming exhibitions for docent training
- Docent party for each exhibit in which you volunteer three or more times
If you are interested in becoming a docent or finding out more, please e-mail our new docent coordinator at cristina [at] morbidanatomymuseum [dot] org. Either way, hope to see you around the museum soon!
