Project Docent

Museum docent is a title given in the United States of America to persons who serve as guides and educators for the institutions they serve, usually on a voluntary basis

Museum docent is a title used at the United States Army Transportation Museum for educators trained to further the public's understanding of the cultural and historical collections of the institution and the capabilities it produced in support of Transportation logistics and the profession of arms.















Prospective docents generally undergo an intensive training process at the Transportation Museum, which teaches them good communicative and interpretive skills, as well as introducing them to the institution's collection and its historical significance. They are also provided with reading lists to add to the basic information provided during training, and must then "shadow" museum staff as they give their tours before ultimately conducting tours on their own
