Our structured summer internship program provides firsthand experience working in a museum. It’s a great introduction to museum work or an opportunity to expand on previous experience.
Each year, positions are available in areas such as aviation or space history, planetary science, digital experience, exhibit and graphic design, communications, finance, and education. Students from all fields of study are encouraged to apply.
During the 10-week program, each intern is assigned a supervisor and works on an internship project and other tasks. In addition to their projects, interns also frequently meet as a group for presentations, professional development opportunities, enrichment activities, and tours.
