The Internship Program at Plimoth Plantation




How can history change YOU?

Plan a garden with heirloom and native plants, design an educational program about archaeology, learn the art of marketing a living history museum, play 17th-century games with summer campers, help us make collections accessible online ... the possibilities are endless.  

We are looking for enthusiastic, team-oriented young people with an interest in America’s early histories who want to share in the day-to-day work of one of our nation's most important living museums. Plimoth Plantation's interns enjoy an intensive experience as diverse as the Museum itself centered on immersive, hands-on fieldwork. Interns also participate in a collaborative group project, enjoy field trips, and engage in unique professional development opportunities. Previous internships have been offered in Museum Education, Collections Management, Public History, Historical Clothing & Textiles, Public Relations, Marketing, and Development.
