The Palm Springs Art Museum's Docent Council is made up of generous volunteers. Docents are critical to the appreciation of our museum by the viewing public. Some tour school children throughout the week and others offer public tours.


The Palm Springs Art Museum will be seeking applications for a new Docent class in February 2016. Prospective Docents should be outgoing, interested in art and ready to learn new things. Spanish-speaking applicants are especially desired!
