Under the supervision of a department head or curator, interns will assist with regular departmental activities that range from research and special projects to routine administrative and clerical tasks.

Internships are an opportunity for students to learn about a specific area within a prestigious mid-sized cultural institution. Academic year interns are required to commit to a minimum of 2–3 days per week for the entire semester. There is no stipend, but interns are eligible for regular employee discounts at the Museum restaurant and store as well as invitations to exhibition openings and free admission to most New York City museums.

Academic Internships for undergraduate and graduate students are by semester or full year. To apply, submit a resume and cover letter to stating the departments you are interested in working in, the skills you bring, and how you hope to contribute to the department.

Please be advised that due to the high volume of applications, we are only able to contact those candidates whose skills and background best fit the requirements of the job openings or internships. We will keep your resume on file should appropriate future openings become available. Please do not send catalogues or original materials. The Museum cannot assume responsibility for any original materials which are submitted. No calls, please.
