Volunteer at the Observatory, Custom House, and More


The Portland Observatory and our other tours need volunteer docents to tell our story. 

As part of the Portland History Docent (PHD) program, a collaborative nine week training program with Portland area museums, the Observatory seeks volunteers with a passion for history and a desire to learn. Learn more about the PHD program at


Docents are an essential part of Landmarks' educational programs, and we invite you to become involved today. Docents who volunteer with Landmarks provide guided tours to visitors at the Portland Observatory, walking tours, and tours of the U.S. Custom House.
