Bidwell House Museum Offers High School Internships10:35AM / Wednesday, March 28, 2012
MONTEREY, Mass. — The Bidwell House Museum, a colonial historic house museum in Monterey, is offering high school students with an interest in history, particularly local Berkshire colonial history, the opportunity to become a Young History Scholar Intern this summer.
High school interns spend two weeks at the museum. In the first week the intern learns about colonial Berkshire history, the Bidwell family, the house, the property and the collection, and how docents give tours. The following week each intern chooses a research topic and begins to give tours of the museum as a junior docent.
Each high school intern receives a $200 stipend for the two-week internship. The museum is also seeking a college student for an eight-week internship.
The internship applications can be found on the museum’s website: www.bidwellhousemuseum.org. Deadline for applications is April 30, and applicants will be invited for an interview. For info, call or email Barbara Palmer, Executive Director of the museum, with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org, 413-528-6888.
