Be an intern for a day in Nauticus’ curator’s museum internship program and discover how this immersive program trains professionals for a career in the museum field. Experience the three distinct sites of the Nauticus Maritime Museum, Hampton Roads Naval Museum, and the Battleship Wisconsin ship museum and see them as the intern would by learning subject matter, how to interact with visitors, caring for artifacts, and communications skills. Participants will conclude with a discussion of how the “fresh-eyed” intern benefits (or not) from this approach and what other intern programs can offer.

Please note: This workshop will include walking and activities throughout the day as we visit the variety of sites on the Nauticus campus.

Space is limited to the first 30 registrants!
