How to get involved.

If you are interested in our community and its history, sign up to become a docent at the Galesville Heritage Museum. Docents are scheduled on Sundays from 1:00 – 4:00 PM from April to November.

Very often, it’s our docents who make the first impression on visitors who come to the Heritage Museum as their first stop in Galesville. Docents are informed about the history of our area and educate our visitors on the collections within the museum. We welcome anyone who is interested in bringing our corner of history to life on Sunday afternoons. Won’t you join us to share your knowledge and enthusiasm?

If you would like to be a docent please call 410-867-4731 for more information or email Karen Czarnowsk, our docent coordinator, at
