We Welcome Volunteers and Interns at the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library.
The Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library offers a variety of internship experiences. An internship gives students an opportunity to work hands-on with museum professionals and gain insight into the workings of a museum. Interns are expected to work a minimum of three months and a minimum of 8 hours a week. Hours and duration of the internship will be determined according to the department.
Internships are unpaid, but may be taken for course credit in cooperation with your institution.
Interns need to be currently enrolled in a museum studies, history, art history or related program. Possible projects can include working with collections management or curatorial staff on projects related to record-keeping, collection research, museum practice or conservation.
Library and Archives:
Interns need to be currently enrolled in a library graduate program. Possible projects include working on cataloging and classification of maps, sheet music, periodical collections as well as preservation of rare books.
