Internships

We have several internship opportunities at the MAH. An internship is different from volunteering in that we ask you to make a significant time commitment to the museum, take responsibility for a specific project, and learn to work across many areas of the museum. Each intern has a manager on staff who will work with you to develop a project plan, provide mentorship throughout the project, and provide feedback on your work. All MAH internships are unpaid. It is possible to get school credit if that works for your professors/teachers/administrators.

We offer internships in two time frames:

  • summer
  • school year
