Interns

National Building Museum interns have the opportunity to work closely with museum professionals on a variety of projects.  Gain valuable work experience at a world-class museum!

Interns should have an interest in the built environment and the workings of a museum. Interns can be graduate or undergraduate students, unless specified, but should exemplify professionalism, dedication, and excellent work ethic.

Summer 2016 Internship Opportunities

Our summer internship program includes a roster of enrichment meetings and trips on Monday afternoons that all interns are expected to attend.  Interns will learn about museum careers by meeting with different museum staff, visit other museums and architecture firms, and more.
