The experience will be limited to six guests per docent and each visitor must wear a face mask throughout offering a safer, more personal tour experience.

Our dedicated, volunteer docent core has long been preparing for this moment and is eagerly waiting to help you navigate The Center’s newest exhibitions. Many of our docents have been with us for years.  Whether new or seasoned, they offer invaluable services as educators and representatives of the Burchfield Penney, and we are so grateful for them. 

Friends & Family Tours, available on Saturdays and Sundays, must be reserved two weeks in advance of your visit. Free with museum admission, you can book tours now, for 2 weeks in advance. Members receive free admission and tours. Not a member? Join today, click here.

"A walk through an exhibition with a docent can connect people to works in a personal and meaningful way,” said Mary Kozub, museum education and tour manager.  “A docent can communicate universal themes of our shared humanity, love of family, pride in work, fairness, justice, joy in nature and that endless search for something larger than ourselves.” 

The natural storytellers that they are, Docents help visitors see that the works o display are still alive.  Kozub said, “Their knowledge inspires us to appreciate how art has been collected, labeled, displayed, and should be celebrated.”
