Volunteer Opportunities


Learn more about our city’s fascinating past and share your knowledge with visitors from around the country and the world by becoming a docent for Walking Tours of Historic Downtown Santa Fe .  

Please join us for a volunteer information session on Saturday, March 7, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m., or 1:00 to 2:00 PM, at the New Mexico History Museum, 113 Lincoln Ave.  (If you are unable to attend on March 7, an alternative information session will be held on Wednesday, March 11, 4:00—5:00 p.m.}

Our walking tour docents tell true stories of the amazing events, colorful characters and significant locations that make Santa Fe the “City Different.” Historic downtown Santa Fe walking tours leave the New Mexico History Museum daily at 10:15 a.m. from April – October.

As a docent, you’ll be invited to exclusive free lectures by historians, and receive a 20 percent discount at all four Museum of New Mexico Foundation gift shops. Proceeds from walking tours benefit History Museum programs and exhibits. 


Volunteer training will take place on three consecutive Saturdays:  March 14, 21 and 28, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Training includes museum classroom sessions, shadowing current guides along the 1.5-mile route, and giving your own practice tour.  


By successfully completing our upcoming training, you could be ready to give your own historic downtown Santa Fe walking tours starting later this spring!
