New Mexico History Museum

Wanted: History Heroes

October 06, 2015


Weekly training classes for new volunteer tour guides at the New Mexico History Museum/Palace of the Governors begin Tuesday, November 3, from 9–11 am. Upon completion in late April, students will have deepened their knowledge of our state’s history and be comfortably prepared to lead groups on tours according to their individual schedules.

Staff members and guest speakers lead the classes, which cover more than 500 years of New Mexico history. The training is free; classes will break for the holidays. To learn more and to register, contact René Harris at (505) 476-5087,

Why volunteer? Besides immersing yourself in the stories of New Mexico’s past and present, you’ll become a part of the museum’s inner workings. Volunteers enjoy great camaraderie and form a close-knit community. Social events include cultural excursions and monthly meetings to learn more about our state’s heritage. Museum guides ignite an appreciation for New Mexico history and culture among visitors of all ages. They also receive free admission to the museum and a discount in the museum shops.
