Docents at the Worcester Art Museum are trained volunteers who share their interest and love of art with Museum visitors. The word docent comes from the Latin word docere, to teach and docents teach in the galleries. They conduct tours of both the Museum's permanent collections and special exhibitions. Tours are both prearranged through the Education Division and drop-in public tours. Tours serve audiences of all ages and interests.

The Museum provides an intensive 18-month training program for persons selected to become docents. This program is historically one day a week for 18 months excluding summers. People interested in applying for a docent training class must be willing to commit to at least two years of active tour-giving beyond the docent training program.
