“Docents are the Heart and Soul of the Community”

-California Automobile Museum

Our docents, under the leadership of the Docent Council, are the educators for the Museum and the personal outreach to our visitors. We conduct tours and help host special events for organized groups, school classes, and individuals. Most of all we enjoy contact with many interesting people from all over the world.
