I participated in a 6 month docent training program because I feel the museum is a unique and valuable facility in Milwaukee. The response from the public has been good and the reaction from people who toured is very positive. We've toured a variety of age and interests groups. The museum staff is very good and a wonderful resource for the docents and visitors.

I am a docent for the Jewish Museum. Although I only took my family on a tour, I loved the classes and information learned from being a docent. This Museum is a great asset for Milwaukee. It shows the Jewish peoples' history and Jewish contributions to the city of Milwaukee. I hope to continue to be involved in this "jewel" , and bring lots of people through the museum to learn about Judaism.
