Gadsby’s Tavern Museum looking for volunteer tour guides

Tours have been getting going around Alexandria’s historic sites over the last year, and one of the most iconic — the Gadsby’s Tavern Museum — is looking for public help to handle new visitors.

“Gadsby’s Tavern Museum, part of the Office of Historic Alexandria, is recruiting volunteers to lead guided tours,” the Office of Historic Alexandria (OHA) said in an email. “Guides are trained to use the historic tavern spaces to share the stories of diverse people in early America who both shaped and were shaped by the young nation.”

Training is scheduled to start on Jan. 15, from 9-11 a.m., with an in-person workshop followed by virtual evening classes and a second in-person workshop in February/March.

“Participants will end the series ready to complete their tour certification,” the OHA said. “Volunteers with both weekend and weekday availability are needed. A minimum of one shift per month (approximately three hours) is required once training is complete.”

Volunteers are required to submit proof of vaccination and wear a mask during on-site shifts.

“To apply, please submit an application online at AlexandriaVa.gov/GadsbysTavern,” the OHA said. “A staff member will follow up with more details about the program.”
