Join the Seaport Museum Crew!
Collections Care and Archives Internship
This internship with the Seaport Museum allows you to become part of a small, dynamic Collections team, providing opportunities to make enormous contributions to the department’s work. The Collections Department is currently in the middle of the first wall-to-wall inventory of the 28,000+ objects in the Museum’s collection including paintings; drawings, prints, and photographs; ship models; historic artifacts related to the lower Manhattan businesses of the 19th century; and a 65,000+ archival collection, including business and ship documents, manuscripts and ephemera. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain collections care and display, registration, and archiving experiences, and be involved in the day-to-day operations of the Museum that tells the story of “Where New York Begins.”
Internships last for a minimum of 10 weeks. Interns must work a minimum of 2 days/week with a 10am-5pm schedule (full-day); sorry, no half-day schedule permitted. This internship position is primarily for college credit.
The Collections Department is currently considering to add a few extra virtual interns for the upcoming summer and fall 2020. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
