Docents are our volunteer tour guides who work with the public to enhance the visitor experience through formal guided tours as well as informal one-on-one conversations. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about icons, Russian culture, and art history, and to meet and work closely with a dedicated volunteer group. The program consists of a 6-month training period as well as continuing education opportunities including lectures, workshops, local trips, and special events.
All training is provided at no cost. New docents are asked to make a one-year commitment. The time requirement is roughly 8 to 12 hours a month. Docents must be available to attend meetings on two Wednesday mornings per month from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.

Each year, the Museum of Russian Icons hosts interns who contribute their talents to the organization while gaining professional skills. Past interns have worked on substantial projects such as curating small exhibitions; creating marketing material; planning programs; and designing products for the Museum Shop. Projects vary depending on Museum needs and students’ interests. One of the benefits of being at a small organization is that interns have an opportunity to observe all staff and departments while specializing in one particular area.
