summer internship project.

As a small non-profit organization, the Abbe Museum offers a limited number of volunteer internships for high school and
college students.


Based on their academic training, interests and the availability of projects, interns work in one of the museum's departments:
• Collections
• Education
• Exhibition Design
• Development

For many projects, a background in anthropology, archaeology, Native American art, history or photography is helpful, but not required.


All internships are volunteer, unpaid and are available on a
part-time basis. Positions vary according to departmental needs.


Housing is the responsibility of the intern.
