Education Programs

Docent Programs

Docents are volunteer tour guides who function as adjunct staff. They lead tours of all ages through the temporary exhibits and permanent collections. The Docents' expertise in "teaching through touring" has made the museum tours very popular. The Midwest Museum of American Art has an extremely active docent program. Anyone interested in our docent program should contact the museum. By email at info@midwestmuseum.us or call (574) 293-6660.


Group tours must have reservations one week prior to the groups visit. Please contact the museum (574) 293-6660.
