Volunteer Tour Guides

Ramsey County Historical Society is looking for volunteers to lead tours at two locations in Downtown St Paul. RCHS facilitates public and private tours of the Ramsey County Courthouse/City Hall and St Paul Union Depot. Tour guides receive training and materials needed to help visitors explore the history, art and architecture of these beautiful public buildings.

The ideal tour guide has a love of history and is excited to share it with a diverse audience of locals and visitors. Excellent verbal communication is a must! Experience giving tours or working with the public in an educational capacity is preferred, but not required.

Courthouse tours are Mondays at 12:15 and Union Depot tours take place every other Tuesday at 11:00. Tour guides must be available to give one or two public tours per month, and generally have availability to lead occasional private tours during the week. Interviews and training will take place in April.
