Docents at Historic Hixon House

Every summer and fall hundreds of people come to La Crosse, visit Historic Hixon House Museum, and take bus or trolley tours of the city. We need volunteers to serve as guides on the buses and trolley, and as docents in the Hixon House.

The main requirement for both positions is that you enjoy speaking to visitors and sharing the wonderful and unique cultural resources of our area. All guides and docents receive scripts and training.

If you are interested in serving as a guide on the tour buses,  historic trolley, or a Hixon House docent, please call our office and we will set up a time for an interview.
