MMoCA's Internship Program invites applications from art-enthusiastic individuals who have completed at least two years of college coursework (or equivalent) and are interested in gaining first-hand professional experience in a museum setting.

Applicants are encouraged to obtain academic credit for their internship through their college or university. While all internships are unpaid, MMoCA offers interns the following benefits:

  • Free admission to MMoCA exhibition openings, art talks, and films 
  • Staff discounts at the Museum Store
  • Behind-the-scenes previews of exhibitions and special events
  • Real-world museum work experience!

Our project-oriented internships are available in Fall (September-December), Spring (January-May), and Summer (May-August), and are dependent upon the needs of individual departments. Scheduling is flexible, however, interns are expected to complete scheduled hours between 9 am and 5 pm, Monday through Friday.

Fall, spring, and academic-year interns are asked for a commitment of 8 to 10 hours per week. Summer interns are asked to commit 15 to 20 hours per week to the museum, and are required to work during Art Fair on the Square (July 8-10, 2017).
