High school freshmen ages 14 and up may become trained museum volunteers who answer visitors’ questions about animals, exhibitions, and the museum. Most often you see them at Exploration Carts focusing on Alcoa Foundation Hall of American Indians, Dinosaurs in Their Time, Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt, Hall of African Wildlife, and Insects. For more information about applying to be a Teen Docent, visit the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh volunteer site.
