Jobs and Internships
Nothing open at the moment, check back later!
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 three time frames:
- school year
- other – usually short-term intensives for graduate students or professionals
Please note that internships at the MAH are a full-contact sport. We don’t have a comprehensive program to provide extensive training or structure, and things move quickly here. That can be exciting or chaotic depending on how you look at it. Successful MAH interns are self-directed, energized about the opportunity to take on significant projects, and undaunted by the unknown. Feel free to talk with us more about what the experience is like (or read blog posts by our interns!) to make sure it’s right for you.
