Connect with art, science, or natural history—and your community

Expand your horizons, meet interesting people, and surround yourself with some of civilization’s greatest achievements. Whether you work with the public or behind the scenes, volunteering or interning with one of the four Carnegie Museums offers the opportunity to share your passion, gain work experience in a creative environment, support the community, explore your potential, learn something new, and make new friends.

Find your niche as a volunteer. Opportunities exist for teens, college students, and adults of all ages. Volunteers work on the museum floors with the public and behind-the-scenes with curators, educators, scientists, and other museum staff. 

Intern with us to gain hands-on experience. Limited, unpaid internships are available at all four museums. Some intern positions may require at least one year of college or university to be completed and a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher.
