The Milwaukee Public Museum strives to provide internship programs that support the mission of the Museum and the goals of our interns through challenging and meaningful opportunities.

We are currently reimagining our internship program for summer 2023 in hopes of creating better, more equitable career exploration and development opportunities. For more information, please contact us at
