Volunteers

A Municipal Art Society of New York group tour listens to a docent.

After completing a rigorous training process, MAS docents lead tours of both Grand Central Terminal and the Midtown West area.

Volunteer docents lead tours for MAS of both Grand Central Terminal and the Midtown West area. In partnership with Metro-North we have been offering the official tour of Grand Central Terminal daily since 2013. And beginning in November 2015, with the 34th Street Partnership, we started the “Empire to Penn” tour of the 34th Street area, on Fridays and Saturdays. Both walking tours include commentary on the history and architecture of these special places in midtown Manhattan.

Docents must complete a rigorous training process that includes both classes and on-site training. We currently have enough docents to lead tours and will not be seeking new recruits in the near future. But if that should change, we will make an announcement in our monthly newsletter. So if you are not currently signed up to receive that, you may sign up here. For more information about these and other MAS Tours, click here.
