Intern Day at the Museum

  • 49 Middle Street Gloucester, MA, 01930 United States (map)

Tours and presentations are free to the public on Intern Day; light refreshments will be served. Donations are gratefully accepted to support the future of summer intern programs.

Interns will be stationed in several downstairs rooms at the Museum. They will offer informal “performances of understanding”, sharing what they have learned.

The Sargent House Museum will celebrate inquiry projects from summer interns during an afternoon of self-guided tours and informal presentations at the museum. The Summer Intern program brings college students into the museum’s mission and daily operations, with a broader goal of connecting students to the life and legacy of Judith Sargent Murray. Within the 10-week program, interns experience aspects of Sargent House Museum operations, development, and event planning. They explore resources at other local cultural institutions, and engage in inquiry-driven research projects inspired by summer work.
