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 13-14, 2019).
