Former MuSe Intern at The Metropolitan Museum of Art
about 3 years ago
The MuSe internship runs during the summer. I commuted into NYC from the suburbs, which was about an hour each way. I normally left my house around 8am and got home between 6pm and 7pm depending on traffic (for buses) and train delays. As I wasn’t taking any summer courses at the time, I found that the hours were very doable and I was able to live my personal life fairly comfortably. This was also helped by the fact that I was able to live at home with my family, so many things like cooking, grocery shopping, roommate dynamics, and bills weren’t a factor in my situation.
