Curatorial interns work alongside professional staff in the Museum's Department of History. The department's research and collections document the breadth, depth, and complexity of the American people, from social, political, military, and cultural history to the history of science, medicine, and technology. Research sources include historical objects, oral histories, prints, photographs, and archives. Outside sources may include the Library of Congress, the National Archives, historical societies, and other government records. Interns will have opportunities to work on a variety of projects which may include research, exhibition, and/or collections-related activities, depending on the nature of the assignment.
