Interns work closely with museum staff on current projects in one or more of the following museum departments: Collections, Curatorial, Education, and Exhibits. Internships are offered during the spring, summer and fall semesters. Interns with a wide variety of skill levels are accepted.
In addition to the internship project, interns are encouraged to take one afternoon per week to explore current exhibitions in a variety of local museums and to talk with museum staff from all departments regarding careers.
Our internships do not offer a stipend, and internships are awarded on a rolling basis throughout the year.
If you are interested, please submit your materials through the online system, SOLAA that all Smithsonian museums use to receive internship applications.
