STUDENT MUSEUM INTERNSHIPS: Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Seminole Indian Museum. Seminole Big Cypress Reservation

The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Seminole Indian Museum’s internship program provides the opportunity to explore the world of museum work and build your academic or professional resume with real world experience.

Located on the Seminole Big Cypress Reservation the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum is committed to building and maintaining the highest quality of exhibits that interpret Seminole culture and history, inspiring an appreciation and understanding of the Seminole people. Five different exhibit galleries engage visitors to explore and learn about the Seminole Tribe and its history.

Unpaid internships in various Museum departments include Education, Outreach, and Membership in the Visitor Services and Development Division, or Exhibits, Oral History, Registration, and Conservation in the Collections Division.

In April of 2009, the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum was awarded full accreditation from the American Association of Museums (AAM). This designation is largely significant in that the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki is the first tribally-governed museum to have received accreditation. It also denotes the Museum as one of only four percent of all museums across the country to be accredited, meeting the highest level of industry standards.

An internship application and specific academic guidelines are required. For more information see the web page at:
