The International Museum of Cultures is a window into indigenous people of the world to create a greater appreciation for ethnic and cultural diversity, thereby furthering mutual respect and peace between peoples.

If you have a passion for passing on knowledge that furthers our understandings of diverse cultures, to the benefit of our own culture, please contact usWe’d LOVE to have you among our volunteers.

 

The Heart Of a Docent

One of the common definitions of the word Docent is a volunteer who leads tours in a museum. This common understanding does not, however, capture the heart of a Docent.

A Docent has a giving heart. A Docent is passionate about the value a museum provides to our culture. A Docent is one who loves to volunteer their time for the love of people and the opportunity to share knowledge.

We are looking for these types of people .

We are the International Museum of Cultures. We are a window into indigenous people of the world to create a greater appreciation for ethnic and cultural diversity, thereby furthering mutual respect and peace between peoples.

If you have a passion for passing on knowledge that furthers our understandings of diverse cultures, to the benefit of our own culture, please contact us.

If you are not sure being a Docent is best for you, but want to learn more about our Museum, again please contact us.

We look forward to speaking with you.

Sad news: the passing of Edna Jane Travis, friend and supporter of the museum

The staff and Board of Trustees of the International Museum of Cultures were saddened to hear of the passing of Edna Jane Travis last night, long time friend and supporter of the museum, after a battle with cancer. We extend our deepest sympathies to Ms. Travis’ family and friends. Ms. Travis supported the museum’s week long Day Camp each Summer, which is named for her. She was a wonderful friend of so many staff and volunteers at the museum; she will be deeply missed.
There will be a service at 2 pm on Friday at the Activity Center on the campus of the International Linguistics Center, just across from the museum’s rear entrance. We will close just before 2 pm so that the museum staff can attend the service.
