Steps to become a guide

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer tour guide for Historic Milwaukee, Inc.!

We will be hosting sessions for new volunteer guides in early January 2018 so be sure to check back soon for complete information.

At this info session, you will:

See the HMI office/shop

Meet other potential new guides that share your interest in history

Meet current guides and hear their stories

Learn about the organization

Learn about the tours we offer

Things to Remember

A good tour guide is friendly, outgoing and eager to learn new things.

You don’t have to be an expert on history or architecture. We provide all of our guides with tour scripts and we are happy to work one-on-one until you feel ready to do a tour on your own.

You don’t have to become a guide to attend our fall lectures. Our lectures will be open to the public this year, so tell your friends!
