The Baseball Heritage Museum, located in the former ticket office at historic League Park at 6601 Lexington Avenue in Cleveland, has an opening for a Museum docent. Docents are an important part of the Museum experience. As a docent you will be front and center in helping the Museum fulfill its mission to preserve and present the history of diversity in baseball by entertaining, educating, and enlightening the visiting public about the multicultural heritage of baseball and the values it represents.
Main duties are greeting visitors, answering visitor questions, processing memberships and handling merchandise sales. Docents also help with programs, field trips, special events and projects as needed. To succeed in this position an interest in baseball may be a plus but is not necessary; docent training on the collection and baseball history will be provided. Consider applying if you are a lover of history or interested in Museum studies. Necessary qualifications include the ability to present a warm and welcoming, casually professional demeanor, a commitment to adhering to the Museum’s protocols for visitor interactions, a willingness to learn, and an ability to adapt to the needs of a place that is constantly changing as we grow!
This is currently a $10 an hour/ 10 hours a week position and involves some weekend work.
Indicate “Museum Docent” in the subject line, and in the body of the email tell us why you are interested in the position.
Application deadline is July 27 2018
