It’s a new year, time for new beginnings.

If you feel the energy that the turning calendar brings and long for a fresh educational challenge, if you’re interested in history or art, if you enjoy talking to people, come join the Docent Training Class and then give of your new knowledge to the thousands of visitors who come to the Parthenon every year. Leading group tours and talking with individual visitors is a rewarding way to share your love of art and history with students, children, and adults.

The Parthenon begins a new Docent Training Class on Saturday, January 20th, and is looking for people who are interested in learning more about ancient Greece, Nashville history, and American art and in sharing that knowledge with others.  Classes are taught by museum staff and local scholars.

Parthenon docents, who range in age from 17 to 70, give tours to school groups and individuals, answer questions, give directions, and act as ambassadors for Nashville and the Parthenon.
