There are also opportunities to receive both paid and unpaid internships at museums and galleries in Saint Louis and beyond. For example, the Saint Louis Art Museum offers positions in their curatorial, registrarial, and education departments. These jobs often revolve around a special exhibition, but can also involve working with an institution's permanent collection. Recently, students have interned at Sotheby's Auction House, the Saint Louis Toy Museum, and the Cloisters at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Smithsonian Archives.
