Plimoth Plantation's Collegiate Internship Program




Thus out of small beginnings greater things have been produced ... and gives being to all things that are; and, as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many...

- William Bradford,  Of Plymouth Plantation

Our Internship Program is a collaborative, project-based learning experience that brings together students and scholars from diverse backgrounds and academic specialities. Working together, Plimoth interns create fully integrated public programs, exhibits and museum projects which are implemented and assessed as part of a continued relationship with Plimoth Plantation even after their sessions have ended. Internships cover numerous areas of interest such as Museum Education, Marketing & Public Relations, and Historic Clothing and Textiles. 

The Museum offers a unique opportunity to work alongside skilled, professional museum staff in a diverse, culture-rich environment. Attend special events, lectures with our artisans and scholars, or participate in once in a lifetime experiences such as an overnight stay in the 17th-Century English Village, Wampanoag Homesite, or Mayflower II
