The Docent Handbook, Sponsored by the National Docent Symposium
Chapter 7 of The Docent Handbook has tips for engaging your museum visitors through Observation Based Touring. Here you'll learn how questions function to generate interest and enhance your group's experience. Types of questions, choosing the right one for the situation – it's in this section. You'll also find ways to develop the crucial skill of handling responses.
