National Museum of American History Internships

The Internship Program at the National Museum of American History offers a number of opportunities for students to learn more about the inner workings of history museums–either as an introduction or a deeper dive into an aspect of the museum field. Typically, internships are at least 20 hours per week for at least 10 weeks. Some internships are specified as full-time (40 hours per week), while others are more flexible and can be arranged between the intern and their mentor. Additionally, some internships are longer than the 10 weeks; internships can be awarded for a maximum of 6 months with a possibility of another 6 month extension as long as the intern still has more opportunities to learn and grow.

Corps members are placed in positions of leadership while being trained, challenged, stimulated, and deeply supported by mentors, community members, and staff.
