Help History Come Alive as an Exhibit Tour Guide

We’re looking for outgoing, friendly and flexible tour guides for our compelling new exhibition, "Opium: The Business of Addiction," opening in April, 2022 at the Forbes House Museum and Milton Public Library in Milton, MA. The installation will tell the story of the Forbes family’s involvement in the 19th-century opium trade and the historical context of the current opioid epidemic. Guides will receive extensive training in January-March, 2022, through in-person and Zoom meetings, depending on weather and COVID protocols, which will be strictly observed. The exhibition will run until March, 2023; flexible hours will be available for tours 1-2 evenings/week and on weekends.
