Starting July 7, the Chandler Museum will offer docent-led tours to visitors three days a week, according to a news release from the city of Chandler.
The tours will include multiple stops around the campus of the Chandler Museum, including the new building and the historic living room in the McCullough-Price House in the hourlong timeframe. The docents will be available at the end of each tour to provide additional information about the exhibitions on view.
“We are excited to offer these volunteer-led tours for museum visitors. These tours are a great chance to learn about the architectural and artistic components of the campus,” the museum's Curator of Education Tiffani Egnor said in the news release. “Our docents have gone through extensive training, so they are well-versed in the content of the museum."
Joan Clark, a new Chandler Museum docent who also provides tours at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, said in a release she is impressed with "everything about the new Chandler Museum."
“As a docent, it's a real pleasure to guide visitors through the museum and help them connect the past with present," Clark said. "It really has evolved into a cultural destination where guests can learn about people, places and events that make Chandler an outstanding city.”
Tours are offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and Sundays from 1-4 p.m. No registration or fee is required for tours, and participants should meet at the front desk of the main museum building. Groups may request a docent-led tour by calling the Chandler Museum at 480-782-2717.
