Museum Teen Internship

The Virginia Discovery Museum is looking for enthusiastic teenagers, ages 15-18, to serve as Museum Interns over the summer. If you enjoy working with kids and are interested in science, history, and art, this is an excellent opportunity to gain some work experience while having fun. 

Teen interns interact with our visitors to help them explore and enjoy the Museum, and will have the opportunity to assist in executing our summer camps for kids ages 4-8. Interns are responsible for maintaining the galleries, engaging families with exhibits, and assisting staff with Museum tasks.

Benefits include training, free garage parking, free Museum passes, and valuable work experience. Each Museum Teen Intern will receive a letter at the end of the summer documenting their hours and experience to share with schools or future employers. 


• Complete a volunteer application form and submit by June 1st.
• Participate in a Museum tour and orientation session. 
• Commit to volunteering for a minimum of 20 hours at the Museum over the summer.
