The museum has 30 people volunteering as docents and staff. Many but not all of them are military veterans and some are woman veterans.

Each new docent is issued a uniform made up of a blue Museum shirt and an ID card on a lanyard. They spend several hours with experienced docents to learn about the museum and the various exhibits. All docents work under the direction of the docent coordinator who arranges duty schedules.

If you are interested in becoming a museum docent call us 805-543-1763 or send us an email at
and leave your contact information. Our docent coordinator will contact you for an appointment.
