The Palm Springs Art Museum's Docents are made up of generous volunteers who are passionate about art and life long learning. Our docents connect visitors to the art work in our galleries and provide positive museum experiences for adults and school children.

During the 2018/2019 season, Palm Springs Art Museum Docents led a record number of visitors and students on tours. In preparation for the new season, Docent Specialists have already started researching and preparing for the new exhibitions which will cover everything from glass to fabrics and design. 

In October 2018, Docents welcomed 22 new Provisional Docents with an extensive training schedule throughout the seven months of the season. 

This season, the Docents will number 74 members who are offering tours at the main Museum, the Galen in Palm Desert, the Architecture & Design Center and the Frey House.
