“I loved that there were many programs and events for interns; there were specific tours and talks designed specifically for interns by the museum staff. Everyone working in this museum was friendly and kind to interns. Staff members were very open in sharing their experiences in this and museum work in general. It was a very engaging work environment for a person interested in museum or library studies. ”
