Internship Program Description:

The Museum’s Internship Program provides college undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates with a wide range of experiences designed to provide insight into the daily workings of a professional museum environment. In addition to working on meaningful, engaging projects with Museum staff, interns engage in a series of meetings, workshops, public programs, and offsite visits to arts and cultural institutions.

Interns are required to commit a minimum of 20 hours a week during the work week. Only individuals authorized to work for the Museum in the United States will be accepted into the internship program. The Museum will consider expressions of interest in providing volunteer services to the Museum from non-work authorized individuals.
