Internships at El Museo del Barrio, Summer 2014

Each spring, summer, and fall El Museo del Barrio offers Internship opportunities to promising undergraduate and graduate students, recent graduates and career changers who are considering careers in the arts, education, non-profits and museum profession.

Through its Internship program, El Museo del Barrio creates platforms for emerging museum professionals and contributes to diversifying the museum field.

During the spring and fall sessions Interns are expected to commit 14-21 hours per week during a 14-16 week cycle, and 10-week cycle during the summer.

Eligibility: With the exception of Arts Interns, a paid summer internship opportunity through the Arts Intern program (, all internships are unpaid. College credit is available on a case-by-case basis. Applicants should apply to no more than two internship positions.
