The museum welcomes students to apply for an internship with the museum. Interns are expected to identify and complete a project that meets both academic and museum goals, assist with education and outreach, and assist with museum special events (STEM Day, Nuclear Science Week, Movie Under the Wings, Nuclear After Dark, Einstein Gala, etc.)
A general museum internship is available that introduces students to the different aspects of this museum on a rotation schedule. This type of internship is great for students still in search of a career path, looking to switch careers or have a general curiosity and interest in working in a museum setting.
All museum interns are expected to commit at least to 12 weeks of full or part-time participation at the museum; hours vary based on student availability and museum needs.
One of the most talked-about events of the Cold War was the downing of the American U-2 spy plane piloted by Francis Gary Powers over the Soviet Union on May 1, 1960. The event was depicted in the Steven Spielberg movie Bridge of Spies, showing how Powers was captured by the KGB, subjected to a televised show trial, and imprisoned, all of which created an international incident. Join the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History to meet with Francis Gary Powers, Jr., author of the book "Spy Pilot" and son of the U-2 spy pilot to view a special showing of Bridge of Spies at the museum.Learn More
