The Lifeblood of the Museum

Without our dedicated staff, docents, volunteers, board and friends, the Drum Barracks could not exist

Docents & Volunteers

Opportunities are open to volunteer as tour docents, to assist in our Civil War library, to assist in our Museum Shop, and to assist with research and exhibition projects. If you are interested in volunteering at the Drum Barracks, complete the Volunteer Form and return it to the Drum Barracks and you will be contacted.

Docents play a major role in presenting the Drum Barracks Civil War Museum to the public, as their interpretations give meaning to the stories the Museum has to tell. They have undergone special training to give them information and knowledge about the Museum and its history.

The docent training program is offered annually. If you are interested in becoming a docent to lead tours at the Drum Barracks, complete the Volunteer Form and return it to the Drum Barracks and you will be contacted.
