Dear Colleagues,

The National Building Museum,(NBM) created by an act of Congress in 1980, is America's leading institution dedicated to exploring and celebrating architecture, design, engineering, construction, and urban planning.

The NBM has several internships related to archives and library sciences. An internship at the National Building Museum provides an opportunity to experience day-to-day life in a museum setting while working on a variety of long-term tasks and projects.

In addition to normal administrative duties, interns have the opportunity to attend weekly lectures, staff meetings, volunteer at special events, participate in tours, and contribute to our education programs and exhibition design. Museum Internships are unpaid positions and participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation and housing.

The Museum is currently accepting applications for Spring 2011.  Schedules can be flexibly arranged depending on the Museum's needs and the intern's schedule.

Attached you will find intern opportunities currently available at the National Building Museum.  Please post the opportunities for any interested students. Intern applications are also available online at: http://www.nbm.orgl

 Please feel free to call (202) 272-2448, extension 3302, or e-mail [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> with any questions. Thank you for posting the application.  I look forward to hosting a student from your institution soon.
