Internship Opportunities

Make an impact

The Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites offer a wide variety of internship opportunities for college students at all levels of study and in many different disciplines.


Advance your education

Our internships are typically one semester long and range from 20 to 40 hours per week, although in some cases other arrangements can be made. Internships may result in college credit, help to expand your education or provide you with job experience. To apply for an internship, you must submit an internship application and a current resume. All paperwork must be completed to be considered for an internship.
