Pictured above are interns Becky Seesan and Andy Hayt. For their 2014 summer internship, they inventoried and photographed more than 2,000 flat file items, including maps, blueprints, posters, newspapers, and land documents.
Interns Nick Samples and Kyle Saylor assist doctoral student Gerry Prout with his research on "General" Jacob Coxey, 2011.
Volunteer Deb Altimus and intern Tim Vlacovsky began inventorying the 990 blueprints from architectural firm Mallalieu, Ross, Roberts, & Doll in 2011.

There are several types of internships at the Massillon Museum which are appropriate for careers in museums and galleries, and also for those with an interest in the arts, history, business, education, public history, and non-profits.

Internships can qualify for college credit if this type of experience is required by your degree. They can provide meaningful hands on experience, and unique networking opportunities with professionals. The museum operates with a very small staff, so you can be sure that your work will be important and valued.
