Internships at Wisconsin Historical Museum!

The Wisconsin Historical Museum has internships available in both education and exhibitions.  These internships are a great way to learn more Wisconsin history, engage and enhance your communication skills, and explore possible careers.

Education interns will develop and deliver one-hour tours to student visitors to the Museum.  A major component of this internship is learning to effectively communicate historical content to a fourth grade audience.  Candidates must have excellent oral and written communication skills, the ability to work well as part of a team/collaboratively and independently, and a familiarity with basic computer programs such as Microsoft Word.   Students who are majoring in history, education, or theatre are especially encouraged

Education interns are accepted on a rolling basis depending upon the needs of the Museum's tour program.  For more information, please see the position description. 

Museum interns will conduct historical research and develop an exhibit for the Historical Museum.  A major component of this internship is the research, design, and installation of an exhibit relating to Native American history.  Other duties include meeting weekly goals and completing readings assigned by staff; selecting artifacts and images, writing labels, and designing/installing case exhibits; and completing other projects as assigned. 

A well-qualified candidate will be pursuing a degree in anthropology, history, museum studies, or a related field, be able to work as part of a team and independently, and have excellent communication skills. 

This twelve-week internship begins the first week of June and ends mid-August 2017.  The internship will include a stipend. Three positions are available; applications will be accepted until all three are filled.   Please see the position description for a more detailed overview.
