The Johnson Museum is temporarily closed. Internship applications for 2020-21 are still being accepted. Interviews can take place remotely. Email with any questions.

The Johnson Museum offers internships in all departments to rising Cornell sophomores, juniors, and seniors enrolled for the full academic year. 

Prior museum experience is not required; coursework in art history is useful and preferred for curatorial and education positions. Students who anticipate having heavy course loads should not apply since interns are expected to keep regular hours (10 hours per week maximum). Federal Work Study applicants are strongly preferred. Different positions become available every academic year.

The following positions are now accepting applications for the 2020–21 academic year:

The positions pay $12.50 per hour; 10 hours per week maximum.


Applicants selected for interviews will be contacted individually, and final decisions will be communicated as soon as possible.
