Exhibit Guides

Become an Exhibit Guide and experience the excitement of touring school groups without a long-term commitment. Meet new people with similar interests and become part of our museum family.

Exhibit Guides are trained in a specific special exhibition or part of a gallery, including Days of the Dead, Gold Rush, or California Indians. Trainings are held periodically throughout the year depending on our need for guides.

Trainings last four to six weeks. After successful completion, guides commit to touring school groups Wednesdays through Fridays, once a week, for two to three months.
