The Museum has a small but dedicated staff of employees and volunteers. We are seeking three to five motivated individuals willing to help in a variety of multidisciplinary projects.

In order to get the full Museum experience, some public relations, business and day to day operations of running a museum will be integral to the position. Besides a project designed for their own academic development, interns are expected to assist staff with providing tours, working in the gift shop, and interacting with volunteers.
