Mystic Seaport Summer Internship Program

Spend your summer (mid-June to August) on the banks of the beautiful Mystic River as you learn about museums and maritime history.

Mystic Seaport is seeking a select group of upper-level undergraduates and graduate students who are passionate about history and curious about museum work. See how the academic history you've studied in school is translated into public history at the nation's fourth largest history museum. One to two days each week will be spent working closely with museum staff on a specific project or research topic. You'll get a behind-the-scenes look at a variety of museums through weekly off-site field trips. A weekly discussion seminar, assigned readings, and presentations by Mystic Seaport leaders will introduce you to museum theory and current best practices. Two days each week (including one weekend day) will be spent as an exhibit interpreter, bringing what you've learned to a broad public audience. For 2013, research projects will contribute to the planning of exhibits, programs, activities, and events surrounding the upcoming 38th Voyage of the whaleship, Charles W. Morgan.
