Fine Arts Museums Docent Programs

Docents of the Fine Arts Museums provide tours of the permanent collections and special exhibitions at the de Young and Legion of Honor. Their service follows extensive training, through seminars and continuing education lectures. With additional training they also provide private group, school group, and access tours, and participate in our Community Speakers Program, which offers lectures for the community on museum-related topics.

Every month the museum hosts an Artist-in-Resident, who installs and demonstrates their art form in the Kimball Education Gallery at the de Young. This interactive program encourages artists to create activities specifically designed to engage the public, in particular, children and families.
