2017 Museum Internships in Chicago, IL

Find a 2017 museum Internship in Chicago, IL. The famous American paleontologist George Gaylord Simpson once said, “I have a debt, a loyalty to the museum; the best place for me to do what I wanted to do.” If you agree with Simpson, then museum internships are for you. If you have a passion for art or history, or both, you’ll be in heaven while you work and you’ll have the chance to expand your knowledge in addition to learning new skills for your career. You’ll also be preparing yourself to enter a field that is rapidly expanding: the 2008-2018 decade is projected to see a 20% increase in the employment of curators, archivists, and museum technicians. And internships at museums can be scored at the most prestigious of places, including the Smithsonian, the Guggenheim, and the Museum of Modern Art. As a museum intern, in addition to spending your days around things like world-famous art, you’ll also have the chance to interact with visitors from all over the globe, which is something not every intern can say.

With a museum internship, you can choose which specific area you’d like to work in, be it science, computers, railways—almost anything you can think of has its own museum, or at least an exhibit. Therefore you get the benefit of pursuing your interests on multiple levels, all while gaining applicable, real-world experience both for your resume and for your life.
