Former Museum Education Employment Program Intern at American Museum of Natural History

The training program is a rigid month of learning the ins and outs of the museum in order to construct your tour. You will thoroughly learn about most of the halls in the museum while learning vital public speaking skills and spending an ample amount of time synthesizing this information in order to construct a tour geared towards children of all ages. You will also get an opportunity to see alumni show their tours as examples and as sources of inspiration, something I was honored to have done this year.
