The National Museum of Australia supports the development of museum professionals and tertiary students by hosting interns from Australia and overseas. Interns are placed within the Museum in Canberra to work on structured projects under the supervision of our staff.
First Nations people are strongly encouraged to apply for an internship at the Museum.
The National Museum interprets Australian social history by revealing the stories of ordinary and extraordinary Australians, promoting the exploration of knowledge and ideas and providing a dynamic forum for discussion and reflection.
The Museum is an agency of the Australian Government and successful interns are required to uphold the Australian Public Service code of conduct.
Tertiary students need to provide evidence of the part of their course curriculum that requires undertaking an internship.
Please note we are unable to assist directly or financially with accommodation, living or travel costs or visa arrangements.
