2022-2023 Museum Interns
Interns at the Denison Museum spend time with antiquities, art and objects that enhance their learning, and deepen their connection to their research. 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.
