Placer County Museums offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities including museum docent, leading walking tours and living history docent. 

All seven of our museums are staffed by our volunteer docents.

Golden Drift Museum

We also have two great school tour programs you can be a part of:

The Gold Rush Program

Bernhard Museum Living History

Our Saturday morning walking tour of Old Town Auburn is docent-led. 

Starting in July, we will be offering a special series of training classes to become Walking Tour docents for Old Town Auburn so make sure to contact us soon if you would like to participate in this program!

If you think you would like to join our volunteer community, and can commit to volunteering with us for a minimum of 10 hours per month, let us know and we would be glad to tell you more about our docent program. Email our Supervising Curator, Bryanna Ryan [email protected] or give us a call at (530) 889-6500.
