The National Portrait Gallery Education Department prides itself
on using the arts as a vehicle to introduce important Americans in
the NPG collection to visitors of all ages. Several opportunities are available so that members of the public, as well as students, can help us achieve these important goals.
Docents at the National Portrait Gallery are volunteers who have had extensive training in on the collections as well as tour techniques. Docent led tours of the National Portrait Gallery are offered Monday-Friday at 11:45 a.m. and 1:00, 2:15 and 3:30 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 11:45 a.m. and 1:30, 3:15, and 4:30 p.m. Meet in the F Street lobby.
At the present time no positions are available. However, if you would like to be contacted when the Gallery is next seeking applications, please email:
These paid educators facilitate the Portrait Gallery school programs that take place in the Donald W. Reynolds Center.
