Hear what others have said about interning for us!

"As the Visitor Services and Evaluations Intern at the Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine last summer, I created, administered, and analyzed data from my own survey, supervised museum art programming, participated in outreach events, and engaged with museum visitors daily. Over the course of the summer, I had many opportunities to take the initiative to shape my own internship experience based on my personal and/or academic interests. The entire staff at the Museum & Theatre were extremely welcoming and made every day working at the Museum a pleasure. I would recommend this position to anyone with a positive, hardworking attitude who loves working with children and families."
-- Maria Felski, Summer 2016

"Over the span of my summer as an Education Intern at the Children's Museum & Theatre of Maine I learned and performed programs for the public about Maine sea life, Greek Astronomy, Theatre and an authentic camera obscura. My experience as an education intern taught me a lot about working with children in a museum environment. Personalities in our summer camp groups varied a lot according to the camper so managing the group posed a unique challenge; however, management was easily attainable with all the fun and engaging activities I had the opportunity to do with them. In addition, performing a variety of programs to the public was quite daunting at first, but became really fun and exciting as I became more comfortable with having an audience. Overall my time at the Children's Museum & Theatre was a unique and valuable experience that helped to make me a more thoughtful educator and I'm grateful for the experience."
-- Jen Galletta, Summer 2015
