Always Welcoming Docents

March 4, 2019

The Park House Museum has a formal docent program. Docents are an integral part of any non - profit museum; they are individuals that have been trained to lead tours of the museum and assist with various educational programs and events. Dedication to volunteer work, their extraordinary appreciation for history, education of others, and the community is what makes a PHM docent successful and essential.


We are Amherstburg’s community museum and want the community to be involved in our preservation process; anyone interested in becoming a docent or volunteer should contact the museum to discuss possible opportunities.
