The Hammer Museum in Haines, Alaska is now accepting applications for their 2018 summer internship program.
The museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the history of the hammer, man’s first tool. With over 2,000 hammers on display, this small museum makes a big impression. From May to September we receive over 5,000 visitors who are just as eclectic as this quirky community.
Hammer Museum interns have the opportunity to learn all about small museum functions. Interns will lead interpretive tours, research and catalog museum collections, develop exhibits, and help manage social media and marketing. Interns will also complete special projects throughout the summer. Intern projects can in part be determined by the intern depending on here interests. Projects may grant writing, fundraising, event planning, and research.
