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.
