Interns at the Denison Museum spend time with antiquities, art and objects that enhance their learning, deepen their connection to their fields of research, and are just really cool.

They learn how to handle and clean ceramics, printed materials, textiles, wooden and painted objects. And they learn how to research items and curate collections. It’s all about observing, thinking and asking critical questions.

Many museum interns go on to careers that are directly related to the knowledge and skills they learned at Denison.

As one student says: “Working in a museum is similar to utilizing a time machine because objects date back as early as the 15th century, and each object tells a story that you learn as you work with it.”
