Gadsby’s Tavern Museum Now Accepting Junior Docent Applications

Junior Docent ProgramParents and teachers, does your child or student enjoy history, learning, and talking about what they know?  Gadsby’s Tavern Museum’s Junior Docent Program is a wonderful way to encourage their interest and enthusiasm!

Gadsby’s Tavern Museum, 134 North Royal Street, is now accepting 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade applicants for the Junior Docent Program. Junior Docents learn the museum tour and provide tours in 18th-century clothing during special events in the spring and summer. They offer an important service by engaging children visiting the museum and sharing their interest in history.

Applicants must be available for the training classes on the Sunday afternoons of March 13, 20, and 27.  Due to the popularity of this program, applicants must call to reserve an audition time, where the child can tell about one of his or her favorite events in history. Call 703.746.4739 to make an appointment or to learn more. Auditions will be held on Sunday, February 6 between noon and 5 p.m.

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Gadsby’s Tavern was the center of social and political life in Alexandria and the new Federal City of Washington.  The tavern served as the premier gathering place for residents – including George Washington – and visitors to eat, drink, learn, and influence history.

For more information, contact Michele Longo at 703.746.4739.
