College programs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art are designed to appeal to a diverse audience of students, from groups of friends on a weekend visit to specific classes on organized academic tours.
Museum Studies Internship Program
The Museum Studies Internship Program is an unpaid volunteer internship opportunity that exposes interns to the inner workings of a major metropolitan museum, promoting an awareness of careers in the field through experiences not available in most academic settings. The Museum selects a diverse group of talented undergraduate and graduate students from a highly competitive, international pool of candidates.
The Museum encourages college group tours of the galleries. Self-guided tours are an easy way to transfer an established classroom dynamic to a new and exciting learning environment. Knowledgeable Museum staff members are also available for guided tours that can address a wide range of curricular topics. Please book in advance. Prearranging your tour will expedite the admissions process. For reservations, please call (215) 684-7580.
