About Guggenheim Museum

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, originally called the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, opened its doors in 1939 in midtown Manhattan. Its mission was to promote the understanding and appreciation of contemporary art and architecture. In 1959, the Guggenheim moved to its current home on the Upper East Side—a classic spiral building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright that is as much a work of art as the exhibits it contains. The Guggenheim showcases high modern and post-modern art through rotating exhibitions and its permanent collection. Recent exhibitions include work by Karl Nierendorf and the building’s own architect, Frank Lloyd Wright.

The museum offers numerous internships in a variety of museum departments, such as art services and preparations, business development, conservation, curatorial arts, development, the director’s office, education, exhibition design and management, facilities and office services, graphic design, finance, information technology, human resources, legal, library and archives, photography, marketing, media and public relations/press office, publications, registrar, retail, special events and visitor services.


Open to undergraduate students with at least junior class standing, graduate students and postgraduate students in all relevant disciplines. Recent grads and those seeking a career change are welcome to apply. Non-U.S. citizens are also eligible.
