Docents are a vital part of the CMA, facilitating our mission of engaging with visitors and enriching their experiences.
Docents volunteer to lead tours for adults and school-age children (pre K-12) through the galleries and studios, helping visitors learn about art and the world around them.
Docent Corps members receive all of the benefits of membership, plus they can:
- attend special luncheons
- participate in trips to other cultural institutions
- attend many educational lectures and gallery talks free of charge
Annual dues are $25 plus the cost of membership. Only active museum members who are in docent training or have completed docent training are eligible for Docent Corps membership.

"Being a docent at the Columbia Museum of Art has been a double delight for me. Not only do I get to pursue an ongoing interest in art, which I never had the opportunity to study in school, but I get to do it with interesting and congenial people...many of whom have become good friends."
