Are you obsessed with rocks? Love minerals and gems? 
Intrigued by meteorites? Looking to feel more connected your community?

This is it, the time is here, make your mark on a growing institution. Looking to share your passion for Maine and its treasures? Want to feel out of this world surrounded by one of the largest selections of lunar material on earth? Are you interested in gemstones, geology, mineralogy, natural and social history? Come join us at MMGM.

We need inspiring people to be the public face of the museum, help interpret the galleries and guide tours. You don’t need to be an expert but someone with an inquiring mind who likes to acquire and share information.

If you enjoy discussing minerals or meteorites but are not interested in leading tours, then our Discovery Gallery is the perfect place to share your passion. Want to become involved, but feel your existing knowledge is not thorough enough, learn about our interactive exhibits and start at our information desk.

Docents are key to the Maine Mineral & Gem Museum’s educational programming. Facilitating discussion and learning, docents enhance the visitor experience and provide a vital link between the exhibits and the audience.Prospective docents will participate in a comprehensive training course and classes will be offered on an ongoing rotating schedule. Classes will be taught by museum curators, guest speakers, and seasoned docents.

By committing to eight or more hours a month at the museum you can join the extended MMGM community and take advantage of this exclusive training in mineralogy, geology, meteoritics and museum practices.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be amongst the first to see the completed museum, increase your knowledge and share it with others.
