The Brooklyn Museum is the second largest art museum in New York City. Located just 30 minutes from Manhattan and next door to the verdant Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the museum has a permanent collection of more than 1.5 million objects of extraordinary range, from ancient Egyptian objects to contemporary canvases.
Each year, the museum’s education division offers several full-time, 10-month internship positions. Intern educators spend the first month in intensive training, where they are introduced to the various museum collections and museum education theories and practices from the intern coordinator, as well as the other museum staff members who will monitor, observe and guide their professional development. Regularly scheduled seminars introduce interns to other Brooklyn Museum departments and education programs at other New York museums. Part-time internships and other internship opportunities for high school and college students are also available.

Do not send academic transcripts. Applications will only be accepted by mail or fax.
