Mission

We are one of the world’s preeminent scientific and cultural institutions.

Activities

Consider becoming a Saltz Intern at the Amjerican Museum of Natural History and learn to use equipment and technologies to guide visitors of all ages in investigations of artifacts, specimens, and the laws of physics. Use pieces of a telescope to explore how scientists view astronomical bodies in the Hall of the Universe, or discover how a snake’s vision is similar to Infrared cameras. In the Hall of Ocean Life, dive into the tiny but powerful work of plankton, or pass around some poisonous sea creatures and their victims.

Training is provided for science content and communication skills.

Participating in the Saltz Internship Program is an opportunity for you to meet Museum personnel, explore scientific content, learn valuable skills for working with and teaching learners of all ages, and have an impact on the experiences of thousands of Museum visitors.
